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 François 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.

About the Authors

François Chollet is a deep-learning researcher at Google and the author of the Keras library.

J.J. Allaire is the founder of RStudio and the author of the R interfaces to TensorFlow and Keras.
