Simoe recommends this course:
Amazing. I learned regression (linear and logistic), k-means clustering, and principal components analysis in uni, but seeing it in an ML context reinforced the grasp I have over those topics. Neural networks were entirely new to me and by far one of the most interesting concepts I've learned from anywhere!
