Overall it was great a course. A little bit weak in theory. I think for practical purposes whatever was sufficient. The detection of Question duplication was a very much cool model. I enjoy it a lot.

This is the third course of NLP Specialization. This was a great course and the instructors was amazing. I really learned and understand everything they thought like LSTM, GRU, Siamese Networks etc.

I'm a master/graduate student who took an NLP course in Uni.
I think that overall this is a very a good introduction to the topic. Some concepts are really well explained - in a simple manner and with a lot of jupyter-lab code to experiment with.
In general in this specialization - the first 3 courses are good. There are some quirks (e.g. why Lukas is needed at all? He doesn't really teaches, just passes it on to Younes) but nevertheless I learned from it. And I think they have good value in them.
The 4th one, however, is completely disappointing. First 2 "weeks" are confusing, not really well explained, but somewhat "bearable". The last 2 weeks are complete sham. They claim to teach "BERT" and "T5" but don't really give any value. You're better off going elsewhere to learn these concepts.
If it wasn't for this, I would give the overall experience a 5 stars, but because of this, I think the overall is more like 3 or 4.

The course is quite informative and it focuses on some cutting edge developments in NLP, which is great. I also really appreciated how well the instructors managed to explain the important concepts of GRU and LSTM. However, I wish the assignments were a bit more challenging. Most of the time, they felt like step-by-step instructions that are almost impossible to get wrong, with not much room for imagination. Good for self-esteem, not so good for skill building... Still, this was by no means a waste of time. A good foundational course that leaves you hungry for more. So perhaps it was the instructors' intention all alone to make it this way :)

Better then the first two courses. Excellent week 1 introduction to Trax - I especially enjoyed Lukasz video about the origins, along with the links to source code and extra readings. Much of the technical content in weeks 2-4 is better covered in the deep learning specialization, however it's fairly brief and demonstrated using Trax so I still learnt something new. The applications in the assignments are interesting - the comparison between RNNs and n-gram models when doing text generation, parts of speech tagging and the question answer duplicate detection with Siamese models. Also got to try a few new things with numpy which was nice.

To begin with, the course is very well structured and the assignments make you apply the theory what you have learnt in the videos in an effective way. The community on slack is very helpful if you need any help. The only thing that I didn't like was the course assignments were using *trax* for building the models instead of powerful frameworks like tensorflow, pytorch. That's the only reason I am rating 4 instead of 5 stars. Overall it is a pretty nice course and you will find it very easy if you have completed the Sequence models course from Andrew Ng's Deep learning specialization.

This is a great course for natural language processing ! The video is short buy very precise for the concept. I think this is a middle level course, so one should already have the basic knowledge of deep neural network, and python skill. Then you will enjoy this journey. I hope for a more freedom style in coding assignment, rather than fill in the None parts style. Then we could obtain a solid knowledge by the deep practice. All in all, this is a great NLP course !!!

Material was good, but the assignments were too hand-holding. We were told what to do on every step of the algorithm. I think it's better to give an almost empty signature function and describe what we should create for that function (input/output) so we can gain more understanding

This course is good but it is too short in my opinion. It is sometimes hard to wrap your head around some concepts that are describe in a 5 minute video. I think this course should have more video lectures with a more detailed (step by step) explanations.

The topics are definitely advanced however the content is very basic and is meant for beginners if I am not wrong. If one is 'starting' to learn to apply deep learning via trax to sequence models, then this is the best course for that goal.

It was a bit repetitive of the 'Sequence Model' course from the Deep Learning specialization, only with the exception of implementing in TRAX.

Assignments are good. Can we have these using pytorch. Or better: Can a person choose his own language and build entire code on that !!

Great course, although would have been better if assignments were implemented in Keras or PyTorch. Otherwise, definitely worth it!

Great information, but some of the assignments had errors and there weren't many interactions from the TAs on the Slack or Forum

Great course! I would have liked Keras/TensorFlow 2.x or Pytorch to be used instead of Trax which is not as frequently used.

Interesting and well explained altough assignment excercise are difficult to understand and they are just focus on Trax

The clarity of exposition was superb! 1 star less for using TRAX. I would have rathered to use Keras or Tensorflow.

We might have included little bit more details on dimensions of the inputs and outputs of the Sequence models.
