Very learning experience, I am a beginner in DS, but the instructors in this course simplified the contents that made me I could easily understand, tools and materials were very helpful to start with.

The course is an aide that provides greater understanding on what data science is and the people that should consider a job in the industry. It was helpful for me personally because I was uncertain that I was on the correct path in considering a data science career. I believe I'm finally starting in the right place.

It was interesting to hear the opinions of the different data scientists that were interviewed for this course and finally to be introduced with the book "Getting Started with Data Science" by Mr. Murtaza Haider, Ph.D.
The other professor, from the NYU, talked too much, and unfortunately too much about himself. :)

pdf from the book are a few years old, and data science is a field that evolves very quickly.
Also, regarding the Watson Visual Recognition exercice: the link did not work. I registered going directly to the page, but eventually, the link was not available on the IBM could page, and so I could not do the exercice.

Preliminary course provides a basic introduction to the question: "What is Data Science". It provides an interesting, albeit brief, introduction to IBM Cloud and a couple of its features. More as an appetite whetter than sufficient to do much useful with. Looking forward to see what arises in the later courses.

A found to be a great motivational course and it meets the objective of giving a perspective of what it is to be a data science. I found the quizes a bit ambiguous and some of them were easy to check / deduce without even reading the corresponding documents or videos. But this course really makes its point!

Overall it is a good class. I enjoyed the content and exercises. There were a few issues with navigation and quiz scoring. More than once, the "mark as completed" button did not work and quiz failed to load or save score. I like the videos in which multiple people with diverse background were interviewed.

Wonderfully structured overview. Interesting to hear form both aspiring data scientists and Professors White and Haider. I have a technology background and am interested in shifting my profession in this direction, and this course mapped out what that move would entail and what skills I need to develop.

The knowledge about regression, neural network and data science, and tool like hadoop was really awesome and very clear to understand the things.
Now I can differentiate the real meaning between data science and data science and can grow up in this particular subject very efficientely I hope so.

Nice start. Give enough motivation to continue learning more after that course. One thing it could be better are the lectures in videos. The quality is OK, but I think it could have more videos, more details, I mean, more content in general. Overall, worth a lot.
Thank you IBM. Thanks Coursera.

Very good content. Covered this stuff before but if I were a beginner it woudve been very helpful and easy to follow along. For that reason I give it a four. I cannot give it a 5 because truthfully speaking I just read the document and answered the tests so I cannot say everything was a five.

During this course, I have realized that data science is so important and it all around the daily operation of everyone.
Be better understand what is data science is the basic to learn and improve the efficiency and we could find more interesting in our work and life then can be engaged.

This is a more of an introduction to data science. I guess this helps absolute beginners to the field of Data Science. I was expecting more content in the first part of the specialization. But that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it. It's really good for anyone who's stepping into the field.

It gives a good overview of the subject and helps you understand what, how and why you need to learn to pursue data scientist career. I would like like to have more extensive talks about application in different fields and what can vary among the industries for you as a data scientist.

The course "What is data science" deals with the "Introduction to data science". By the end, I got a clear understanding between various concepts of data science and different applications of data science. And student gets to know whether data science is the field they want or not.

Could've been concise on how to implement the findings of a data scientist on a daily basis. Useful if you're thinking about a career change, will definitely give some insights if this is the right pattern for you to pursue as a next step in your professional career/development.

I like it as a general introduction to Data Science, but i think it is a bit too general to be a full fledged course on its own? It's more like an info session for Data Science. Still love it tho. Got some valuable information about the trend and general approaches in the field.

Bom curso. Bem introdutório, como acho que era a proposição dos criadores. Mescla experiencia de jovens e profissionais de mercado, passando suas vivencias quanto ao campo de Data Science. É um bom começo para entender um pouco sobre a profissão e os desafios inerentes a ela.

The course gives a clear understanding of what is data science, who are data scientists, what activities do they perform, and what are the essential characteristics one must possess in order to become a data scientist. However in terms of content, a bit less satisfying.

This course give you an introduction what is data science concept. What the key component to be data scientist. Overall it is okay but for the supplement material should be more update since instructions have some key point missing. Overall it's a good class to start

As PhD student taking this course, I expected to see if I'm really fit to the field of data science or not. Although the course was good, it could be improved if it gives students some initial taste to this field by giving them some easy projects in different areas.

This course provides you with the fundamentals of the data science, the tools and notions you will meet ahead in this field of study and a very transparent depiction of a data scientist's mindset. Great start to earn your attention for the rest of the course.

A wonderful beginning to my journey to become a data scientist. Listening to experienced data scientists and their contributions to the field gave me goose bumps and I have never been more inspired to be one of them and be part of the data science community.

Great that you can take notes, but unfortunately as of now can't export them. Plus I got everything right for the last part of the final assessment, but marked wrong. Maybe work on an algorithm for grading in addition to peer-review (e.g. like Duolingo).

It would be more helpful if this course had more of hands on training insted of soo much theory as i found the course intresting initially as it was more ful learning identifying the objects in image. I feel it should be more hands on then what it is.
