TOP REVIEWS FROM TEXT MINING AND ANALYTICS
Outstanding mix of theory and practical applications to help understand the theory. Well organized and excellent presentations. Thank you!
The content of Text Mining and Analytics is very comprehensive and deep. More practise about how formula works would be better. Quiz could be not tough to be completed after attending every lectures.
very theoretical. very insightful too. finally got a glimpse how the features that I took for granted took shape ... thanks to the instructor, I love the textbook as well ~
It is rare to find an online course that explains the statistics and intuition behind text mining and machine learning algorithm!
About the Data Mining Specialization
The Data Mining Specialization teaches data mining techniques for both structured data which conform to a clearly defined schema, and unstructured data which exist in the form of natural language text. Specific course topics include pattern discovery, clustering, text retrieval, text mining and analytics, and data visualization. The Capstone project task is to solve real-world data mining challenges using a restaurant review data set from Yelp.
