Russian subtitles in Coursera courses

This is not the first article on the course about the courses provided by a team of professors Coursera . There were generally about life , and about the individual courses .
But it seems to me that this is such a wonderful organization that once again remembering about it is not a sin.

A big obstacle to knowledge is that all courses are conducted in English. And it repels. I myself recently thought that studying unfamiliar material in an unfamiliar language is something unimaginably difficult. But the guys from Coursera came up with a solution to this problem - students were given the opportunity to create subtitles for lectures in a rather convenient service. And in Russian, despite the not-so-large Russian-speaking community, they are already appearing .

So, in this article I am going to bring a list of subtitles that exist today for lectures of Coursera courses and at the same time advertise a machine learning course , which just restarted this week.

Frankly speaking, there are not very many subtitles so far, basically, they are available for the first couple of lectures and, for some reason, a few random ones from the course (probably the translators most liked it). But this is quite enough to get an idea of ​​the course and the teacher, and then either try to look with English, or convince some English-understanding friend that the course is cool and requires translation immediately.

What we have today:
Probabilistic Graphical Models - introductory section 3 of 4 lectures +1 randomized
Cryptography (Cryptography) - 4 videos from the first two blocks
Algorithms: Design and Analysis (video from the first pair of
Modelthinking blocks
(Models) - several random video
Software as a Service - introductory lecture + several random video
Game Theory (game theory) - introductory lecture
Introduction to Logic (Introduction to Logic) - Introductory Lecture + A Pair of Random
Compilers (Compilers) Introductory Lecture + Another
Machine Learning - Video from the First Two Blocks
Cs101 -
Introductory Lecture + A Pair of Random
Human Computer Interaction - Introductory
Vaccines lecture
- the first two videos
Internet History, Technology, and Security (introductory lecture + couple more videos
Fantasy And Science Fiction) (Fantasy and science fiction) - a couple of first videos
(I can not say about the quality of subtitles, unfortunately, there is no time to master them all)

Machine learning is one of the first courses that Coursera introduced. And not surprisingly, its author, Andrew Ng, is one of the founders of the company. The course was first launched in December 2011, then in April and now a new launch (with the same lectures as in April, and maybe in December).
During the training, it is proposed to listen to lectures, answer mini-questions in the lectures themselves and to polls for the weekly block, as well as perform programming tasks that are checked automatically, that is, you do not have to wait.
At the end of the course, if you gain 80% of the sum of weekly surveys and development tasks, you will receive a certificate of completion. You can get these 80% even if you start taking the course late - the penalty for late delivery is just 20%, and you can pass the questions up to 100 times.

The course is simply amazing. Firstly, the topic itself is interesting and quite popular (here is an example of use ). Secondly, Andrew says well, it’s very understandable for any level of training, he even explained what a derivative in passing explained in one lecture (who is particularly bored, there is a lecture acceleration mode to 1.5). Thirdly, after completing assignments, there really remain development skills and understanding in which direction one should think when confronted with a particular problem.

And yes, by the way, this course is planning a stable appearance of Russian subtitles. I don’t know how else to express my gratitude to this company, but how else to expand the audience. Most likely, with the speed of the course I will not be in time, but, I hope, someday I will translate it in its entirety. Edits are welcome, for this you just need to find the Help with Subtitles link to the translators =)
UPD : on the course page
, not all Russian subtitles created by translators are displayed in lectures on the machine learning site. People from universalsubtitles wrote that they are working on this bug, and as a temporary solution I can only suggest going to the universalsubtitles website and watching lectures there - subtitles are shown correctly on it.
