After seeing the AI hype, I was so much tempted to understand how machine learning was helping to solve complicated problems. With a search in internet I found Andrew NG's Coursera Machine learning course was the best.
It is a really nice course which helps to understand the concepts in machine learning with medium concentration on maths and less on programming. Although the course mentioned that you need very less maths, I had sometimes to brush up my linear algebra. For programming, Octave was used which already had libraries/APIs built in so that we directly can concentrate on the maths concepts than writing library functions in Octave
I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to get an initial impression of Machine learning. This course is a kind of stepstone for beginners.
By the time I completed the course, Coursera had stopped giving the free statement of accomplishment certificates. If I want to get a course completion certificate, I had to pay some 70€. I am attaching here my course completion status PDF here and also some screenshots.
