Introduction to neuralnet and Evaluation Methods
By the end of this chapter, you will be able to:
- Use a neural network to solve a classification problem by using the neuralnet package.
- Create balanced partitions from a dataset, while decreasing leakage, with the groupdata2 package.
- Evaluate and select between models using cross-validation.
- Explain the concept of multiclass classification.
In this chapter, we aim to equip you with a practical understanding of neural networks.
While neural networks have been around in some form since the mid-twentieth century, they have recently surged in popularity. Be it self-driving cars or healthcare technologies, neural networks are fundamental to some of ...
