Workshop 4： Deep Learning Using R
Time: 8pm-11pm, July 6, China Time / 8am-11am, July 6, US Eastern Time
Location： Virtual on Zoom (Free Registration)
Deep learning is a very active area of research in the machine learning and artificial intelligence communities. The foundation of deep learning is the neural network. In this workshop, we will teach how to practically carry out deep learning using the R package keras. Several real-world data sets will be used to illustrate how to build single layer, multiple layer, convolutional, and recurrent neural networks. Basic knowledge of R is expected.
