Description

You're looking for a complete Artificial Neural Network (ANN) course that teaches you everything you need to create a Neural Network model in R, right?

You've found the right Neural Networks course!

After completing this course you will be able to:

  • Identify the business problem which can be solved using Neural network Models.

  • Have a clear understanding of Advanced Neural network concepts such as Gradient Descent, forward and Backward Propagation etc.

  • Create Neural network models in R using Keras and Tensorflow libraries and analyze their results.

  • Confidently practice, discuss and understand Deep Learning concepts

How this course will help you?

A Verifiable Certificate of Completion is presented to all students who undertake this Neural networks course.

If you are a business Analyst or an executive, or a student who wants to learn and apply Deep learning in Real world problems of business, this course will give you a solid base for that by teaching you some of the most advanced concepts of Neural networks and their implementation in R Studio without getting too Mathematical.

Why should you choose this course?

This course covers all the steps that one should take to create a predictive model using Neural Networks.

Most courses only focus on teaching how to run the analysis but we believe that having a strong theoretical understanding of the concepts enables us to create a good model . And after running the analysis, one should be able to judge how good the model is and interpret the results to actually be able to help the business.

What makes us qualified to teach you?

The course is taught by Abhishek and Pukhraj. As managers in Global Analytics Consulting firm, we have helped businesses solve their business problem using Deep learning techniques and we have used our experience to include the practical aspects of data analysis in this course

We are also the creators of some of the most popular online courses - with over 250,000 enrollments and thousands of 5-star reviews like these ones:

What is covered in this course?

This course teaches you all the steps of creating a Neural network based model i.e. a Deep Learning model, to solve business problems.

Below are the course contents of this course on ANN:

  • Part 1 - Setting up R studio and R Crash course

    This part gets you started with R.

    This section will help you set up the R and R studio on your system and it'll teach you how to perform some basic operations in R.

  • Part 2 - Theoretical Concepts

    This part will give you a solid understanding of concepts involved in Neural Networks.

    In this section you will learn about the single cells or Perceptrons and how Perceptrons are stacked to create a network architecture. Once architecture is set, we understand the Gradient descent algorithm to find the minima of a function and learn how this is used to optimize our network model.

  • Part 3 - Creating Regression and Classification ANN model in R

    In this part you will learn how to create ANN models in R Studio.

    We will start this section by creating an ANN model using Sequential API to solve a classification problem. We learn how to define network architecture, configure the model and train the model. Then we evaluate the performance of our trained model and use it to predict on new data. We also solve a regression problem in which we try to predict house prices in a location. We will also cover how to create complex ANN architectures using functional API. Lastly we learn how to save and restore models.

    We also understand the importance of libraries such as Keras and TensorFlow in this part.

  • Part 4 - Data Preprocessing

    In this part you will learn what actions you need to take to prepare Data for the analysis, these steps are very important for creating a meaningful.

    In this section, we will start with the basic theory of decision tree then we cover data pre-processing topics like  missing value imputation, variable transformation and Test-Train split.

  • Part 5 - Classic ML technique - Linear Regression
    This section starts with simple linear regression and then covers multiple linear regression.

    We have covered the basic theory behind each concept without getting too mathematical about it so that you

    understand where the concept is coming from and how it is important. But even if you don't understand

    it,  it will be okay as long as you learn how to run and interpret the result as taught in the practical lectures.

    We also look at how to quantify models accuracy, what is the meaning of F statistic, how categorical variables in the independent variables dataset are interpreted in the results and how do we finally interpret the result to find out the answer to a business problem.

By the end of this course, your confidence in creating a Neural Network model in R will soar. You'll have a thorough understanding of how to use ANN to create predictive models and solve business problems.

Below are some popular FAQs of students who want to start their Deep learning journey-


Why use R for Deep Learning?

Understanding R is one of the valuable skills needed for a career in Machine Learning. Below are some reasons why you should learn Deep learning in R

1. It’s a popular language for Machine Learning at top tech firms. Almost all of them hire data scientists who use R. Facebook, for example, uses R to do behavioral analysis with user post data. Google uses R to assess ad effectiveness and make economic forecasts. And by the way, it’s not just tech firms: R is in use at analysis and consulting firms, banks and other financial institutions, academic institutions and research labs, and pretty much everywhere else data needs analyzing and visualizing.

2. Learning the data science basics is arguably easier in R. R has a big advantage: it was designed specifically with data manipulation and analysis in mind.

3. Amazing packages that make your life easier. Because R was designed with statistical analysis in mind, it has a fantastic ecosystem of packages and other resources that are great for data science.

4. Robust, growing community of data scientists and statisticians. As the field of data science has exploded, R has exploded with it, becoming one of the fastest-growing languages in the world (as measured by StackOverflow). That means it’s easy to find answers to questions and community guidance as you work your way through projects in R.

5. Put another tool in your toolkit. No one language is going to be the right tool for every job. Adding R to your repertoire will make some projects easier – and of course, it’ll also make you a more flexible and marketable employee when you’re looking for jobs in data science.

What is the difference between Data Mining, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning?

Put simply, machine learning and data mining use the same algorithms and techniques as data mining, except the kinds of predictions vary. While data mining discovers previously unknown patterns and knowledge, machine learning reproduces known patterns and knowledge—and further automatically applies that information to data, decision-making, and actions.

Deep learning, on the other hand, uses advanced computing power and special types of neural networks and applies them to large amounts of data to learn, understand, and identify complicated patterns. Automatic language translation and medical diagnoses are examples of deep learning.

Overview slide shows implementation in Python, but implementation exercises are actually in R, per the course title. Good explanation of locating and installing RStudio.
