Advanced Machine Learning with R by Cory Lesmeister & Dr. Sunil Kumar Chinnamgari Book Summary
Master machine learning techniques with real-world projects that interface TensorFlow with R, H2O, MXNet, and other languages
Gain expertise in machine learning, deep learning and other techniques
Build intelligent end-to-end projects for finance, social media, and a variety of domains
Implement multi-class classification, regression, and clustering
R is one of the most popular languages when it comes to exploring the mathematical side of machine learning and easily performing computational statistics.
This Learning Path shows you how to leverage the R ecosystem to build efficient machine learning applications that carry out intelligent tasks within your organization. You'll tackle realistic projects such as building powerful machine learning models with ensembles to predict employee attrition. You'll explore different clustering techniques to segment customers using wholesale data and use TensorFlow and Keras-R for performing advanced computations. You'll also be introduced to reinforcement learning along with its various use cases and models. Additionally, it shows you how some of these black-box models can be diagnosed and understood.
By the end of this Learning Path, you'll be equipped with the skills you need to deploy machine learning techniques in your own projects.
This Learning Path includes content from the following Packt products:
