Probabilistic graphical models (PGMs) are a rich framework for encoding probability distributions over complex domains: joint (multivariate) distributions over large numbers of random variables that interact with each other. These representations sit at the intersection of statistics and computer science, relying on concepts from probability theory, graph algorithms, machine learning, and more. They are the basis for the state-of-the-art methods in a wide variety of applications, such as medical diagnosis, image understanding, speech recognition, natural language processing, and many, many more. They are also a foundational tool in formulating many machine learning problems.
This course is the first in a sequence of three. It describes the two basic PGM representations: Bayesian Networks, which rely on a directed graph; and Markov networks, which use an undirected graph. The course discusses both the theoretical properties of these representations as well as their use in practice. The (highly recommended) honors track contains several hands-on assignments on how to represent some real-world problems. The course also presents some important extensions beyond the basic PGM representation, which allow more complex models to be encoded compactly....

Prof. Koller did a great job communicating difficult material in an accessible manner. Thanks to her for starting Coursera and offering this advanced course so that we can all learn...Kudos!!

The course was deep, and well-taught. This is not a spoon-feeding course like some others. The only downside were some "mechanical" problems (e.g. code submission didn't work for me).

A comprehensive introduction and review of how to represent joint probability distributions as graphs and basic causal reasoning and decision making.

Great course. some programming assignments are tough (not too nicely worded and automatic grader can be a bit annoying) but all in all, great course

This subject covered in this course is very helpful for me who interested in inference methods, machine learning, computer vision, and optimization.

Great course, I miss some programming assignments (I didn't do the "honors"), but the quizzes are already good to test your general understanding.

This course is really good. It is well organized and taught in the best way which really helped me to implement similar ideas for my projects.

This course gives a solid basis for the understanding of PGMs. Don't take it too fast. It takes some time to get used to all the concepts.

I found well structured contend of these rare probabilistic methods (Actually this is the only reasonable course in this approach online)

Not as rigorous as the book, but very good. However, Octave should not be be necessary and is a road block to completing assignments.

One of the best courses which i visited.

The explanation was so simple and there were many examples which were so helpful for me

This was my first experience with Coursera! Thanks prof. Daphne Koller for this course and Coursera at all.

I guess this is probably the most challenging one in the Coursera. Really Hard but really rewarding course!

Some more exam questions and variation, including explanations when failing, would be very useful.

Great course, looking forward for the following parts. Took it straight after Andrew Ng's one.
