“Recommender Systems and Deep Learning in Python Course” Unbelievably, recommender systems are now used in almost all internet businesses in some capacity. Why are “recommender systems” helpful and what do I mean when I use the term? Let’s examine Google, YouTube, and Facebook, the top 3 websites on the Internet, as determined by Alexa. The very basis of these technologies is recommender systems. Google’s search outcomes They are the reason Google is currently the most prosperous technology business. a video interface on YouTube I’m confident I’m not the only one who has unintentionally wasted hours on YouTube when there were more pressing matters to attend to! How exactly do they persuade you to do that? That’s accurate. suggester programmes Facebook is so influential that national governments around the globe are concerned about its overbearing power! (Or perhaps they are concerned about losing their own influence. Currently, udemy is offering the course for up to 88 % off i.e. INR 399 (INR 3,499).  (4.9 USD)

Resources Required

  • Just be familiar with some fundamental maths for the early sections
  • For a deeper understanding of the advanced sections, be familiar with probability, linear algebra, and calculus
  • Know Python and the Numpy stack well (see my free course)
  • Know the fundamentals of utilising Keras for the deep learning segment

Pros of course

  • Arnav Bhagat (5/5) : For machine learning beginners and experts this is a very good course.
  • Elias Elfarri (3/5) : I like the time series course which basically is the ideal balance between theory and practice.
  • Elahe Aghapour (3/5) : It is good for people to learn the basics of recommender systems but nothing beyond basics!
  • Hua Xu (5/5) : This is a great great (not typo, I said great twice) course.

Cons of course

  • Rajiv Popat (1/5) : Literally every slide in section 3 is just one boring formula after another written using complex notions to describe simple things which could have been described intuitively.
  • Viktor Banai (1/5) : This lecture could have been a real gem but not with this teaching approach, it is awful.
  • Indrajit (1/5) : Communication skill is very poor and not able to explain the mathematical notations and equations in layman’s term.
  • Y N (1/5) : The epitome of teaching is to make difficult things simple but this instructor tends to make difficult things even more difficult.

Positive Review

Juan Pablo Arango Saldarriaga (5/5) : This is really a great course! The best I’ve taken on Udemy. It has the perfect balance between theory and practice. Lazy Programmer explains quite great and it’s a course where you learn how to program things by yourself, aside many other courses. I’m not done yet with the course and I simply love it! Definately checking other courses by Lazy Programmer 🙂

Negative Review

Vivek Singh (1/5) : The explanations in this course are not all proper.The Bayes Rule Explanation, the second video on Markov Model, the explanations were awful
