Book Description

Deep Learning is a powerful subset of machine learning that is very successful in domains such as computer vision and natural language processing. This book will open the gates for you to enter the world of neural networks by building powerful deep learning models using R ecosystem.

This book will introduce deep learning fundamentals from first principles, you will learn how to build a neural network model from scratch. It will show how to use deep learning libraries such as Keras, MXNet and Tensorflow. We will build deep learning models for a variety of tasks and problems including structured data, computer vision, text data, anomaly detection and recommendation systems. Later we will cover advanced topics such as Generative Adversarial Networks, Transfer Learning, large-scale deep learning in the cloud. You will also learn about the theoretical concepts of deep learning projects such as how to tune and optimize your model, how to deal with overfitting, data augmentation, and other advanced topics.

By the end of this book, you will be all ready to implement deep learning concepts in research work or projects.
