There Are Still Nearly 1,200 Coursera Courses That Are Completely Free

There Are Still Nearly 1,200 Coursera Courses That Are Completely Free | University-Lectures-Online | Scoop.it
Courses from 166 universities, including Stanford, Georgia Tech, Yale, Duke, and Michigan, are part of the list.

Are Coursera courses still free? At Class Central, we get that question so often that I wrote a guide to answer it. Generally speaking, Coursera courses are free to audit but if you want to access graded assignments or earn a Course Certificate, you will need to pay. This change was first announced in October 2015, and went live in January 2016.

 

But there are always a few courses that were still completely free. When you signed up for these courses, you would see an option of “Full Course, No Certificate.” For courses that are part of the new model, you need to select the “audit” option.

 

It can be tricky to figure out which courses have this option. This is particularly because Coursera is a single page app, and the information is only available once you are logged in. So instead of going through each course one by one and then clicking on enroll, Selenium was used to figure it out. The infrastructure developer Bob Brady set up an AWS instance along with a Cloud 9 IDE for this automation. Below is a screenshot of the setup. The result was, more than 1,150 Coursera MOOCs (1,174, to be exact) are still completely free (including the graded assignments, minus the certificate). Even Coursera’s own help pages claim that for “all courses” you can only access the non-graded materials and lectures for free.

10 Online Big Data Courses

10 Online Big Data Courses | University-Lectures-Online | Scoop.it

The explosion of hype around the term “big data” ushered in a rabid desire in companies big and small to get their hands on employees with a data science skill set. For evidence, you need look no further than Indeed’s graph of the number of big data-related job postings (see figure).


If you already have the skill set to enter the world’s sexiest profession, it’s a great time to be alive. For those with enough money and expendable time, there’s always the option to go back to school. But for the rest of us, hope is not lost; thanks the rise of the internet, we can begin exploring data science from the comfort of our own homes, and for a fraction of the cost of academia or retraining. Obviously, we’re not saying the options on this list can replace a formal education- but for those looking to expand (or even just begin working on) their big data skillset, they’re a great place to start.

Machine Learning Courses (Collection)

Machine Learning Courses (Collection) | University-Lectures-Online | Scoop.it

Browse Machine Learning courses and specializations. Machine learning courses focus on creating systems to utilize and learn from large sets of data. Topics of study include predictive algorithms, natural language processing, and statistical analysis.

 

What is Machine Learning? Machine learning is the science of getting computers to act without being explicitly programmed. In the past decade, machine learning has given us self-driving cars, practical speech recognition, effective web search, and a vastly improved understanding of the human genome. Machine learning is so pervasive today that you probably use it dozens of times a day without knowing it. Many researchers also think it is the best way to make progress towards human-level AI. In this class, you will learn about the most effective machine learning techniques, and gain practice implementing them and getting them to work for yourself. More importantly, you'll learn about not only the theoretical underpinnings of learning, but also gain the practical know-how needed to quickly and powerfully apply these techniques to new problems. Finally, you'll learn about some of Silicon Valley's best practices in innovation as it pertains to machine learning and AI.

 

This list of courses provides a broad introduction to machine learning, datamining, and statistical pattern recognition. Topics include: (i) Supervised learning (parametric/non-parametric algorithms, support vector machines, kernels, neural networks). (ii) Unsupervised learning (clustering, dimensionality reduction, recommender systems, deep learning). (iii) Best practices in machine learning (bias/variance theory; innovation process in machine learning and AI). The course will also draw from numerous case studies and applications, so that you'll also learn how to apply learning algorithms to building smart robots (perception, control), text understanding (web search, anti-spam), computer vision, medical informatics, audio, database mining, and other areas.

A bird’s eye view of undergraduate mathematics and a glimpse of wider horizons, number theory, and algebra, increase breadth and depth, but also cohesion, by connecting topics that were previously strangers to each other, such as projective geometry and finite groups, and analysis and combinatorics.

Deep Learning and Neural Networks [ITP-NYU 2016 Video Lectures]

Deep Learning and Neural Networks [ITP-NYU 2016 Video Lectures] | University-Lectures-Online | Scoop.it

Neural networks are one of the most beautiful programming paradigms ever invented. In the conventional approach to programming, we tell the computer what to do, breaking big problems up into many small, precisely defined tasks that the computer can easily perform. By contrast, in a neural network we don't tell the computer how to solve our problem. Instead, it learns from observational data, figuring out its own solution to the problem at hand.

 

Automatically learning from data sounds promising. However, until 2006 we didn't know how to train neural networks to surpass more traditional approaches, except for a few specialized problems. What changed in 2006 was the discovery of techniques for learning in so-called deep neural networks. These techniques are now known as deep learning. They've been developed further, and today deep neural networks and deep learning achieve outstanding performance on many important problems in computer vision, speech recognition, and natural language processing. They're being deployed on a large scale by companies such as Google, Microsoft, and Facebook.

 

The purpose of these lectures is to help you master the core concepts of neural networks, including modern techniques for deep learning. After listening to these lectures you will have a good understanding of neural networks and deep learning to solve complex pattern recognition problems. And you will have a foundation to use neural networks and deep learning to attack problems of your own interest.
