Well taught course, would have preferred if went further into topics like opinion mining (even if we had optional lectures or assignments). However, definitely a fun course to learn a lot.
My favorite course and my favorite instructor. Highly informative. I wish i want to be a real student of the instructor.
It is rare to find an online course that explains the statistics and intuition behind text mining and machine learning algorithm!
This is a very good course. I think it provides a very good foundation of text mining and analytics like PLSA and LDA. More advanced research discussed in the last lecture is also very interesting.
