Quite advanced towards the end, but this is a strength of the course. It has a university feel where Hinton's lectures overview the main ideas and the reading, quiz and prog. assignments get you to explore the ideas further. I enjoyed the course, learned a lot despite it being a bit old now. Thoroughly enjoyed, challenging at times but very rewarding! - Thanks to all involved with the course.

Great course, though some of assignments were quite hard...

An essential course by one of the most influential leaders of the development of neural network techniques over more than three decades.

The course covers the subject matter in a very complete way. It starts out kind of slow, however by Programming Assignment 3, you are forced to really show you know what is going on. The programming assignments really test you and force you to go back and fill in the holes in your understanding of the math and structure of these amazing mathematical tools.
