Deep Learning with R

Book Description

Summary

Deep Learning with R introduces the world of deep learning using the powerful Keras library and its R language interface. The book builds your understanding of deep learning through intuitive explanations and practical examples.

About the Technology

Machine learning has made remarkable progress in recent years. Deep-learning systems now enable previously impossible smart applications, revolutionizing image recognition and natural-language processing, and identifying complex patterns in data. The Keras deep-learning library provides data scientists and developers working in R a state-of-the-art toolset for tackling deep-learning tasks.

About the Book

Deep Learning with R introduces the world of deep learning using the powerful Keras library and its R language interface. Initially written for Python as Deep Learning with Python by Keras creator and Google AI researcher Fran�ois Chollet and adapted for R by RStudio founder J. J. Allaire, this book builds your understanding of deep learning through intuitive explanations and practical examples. You�ll practice your new skills with R-based applications in computer vision, natural-language processing, and generative models.

What�s Inside

  • Deep learning from first principles

  • Setting up your own deep-learning environment

  • Image classification and generation

  • Deep learning for text and sequences

  • About the Reader

    You�ll need intermediate R programming skills. No previous experience with machine learning or deep learning is assumed.
