This is my first advanced specialisation course and I really appreciate the thorough advanced statistics provided. That being said the lecturer must be nearer to the mic when doing his recordings as well as be a bit more enthusiastic ( I dont know how but data science should be taught more thought provoking or a subtle change of tone from time to time as opposed to the monotone voice ive heard throughout all these lectures). The code is outdated in the git hub and the preliminary stages of running those codes in Github did not work. Lecture notes would useful as I am patient enough to use the subtitles and pick out what I assume (I am guessing) is the most important statistical knowledge from the course. The courses before had pdf files to explain statistics and they are very helpful for data science students globally.
I would love to translate the subtitle to Dutch or at least have subtitles in english, then I can speed up, the video, because the voice over is really boring to listen to and it causes me, that I switch over to other websites. The topic about the swot analysis and smart goals is great but what has it really to do with data science. The best way to find a business case is to understand the core processes, so i guess that is the goal?
A great course on Artifical Intelligence with a practical example. I wish to learn how AI applies in the manufacturing environment.
The instructor is really a great expert in business applications of AI.
Not interactive with students to their level of understanding.

“AI has a vast potential to improve the business environment and the overall quality of life for all of us is what interests me the most. Generally, I tend to prioritize technical underpinings that maximize actual business and customer value. AI brings innovation, business opportunities, optimization, and efficiency. I will be happy to share my expertise on this topic inside the course.”
