Machine learning is a subfield of computer science that gives computers the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed. Deep Learning is the next big thing and a part of machine learning. Its favorable results in applications with huge and complex data is remarkable. R is one of the most popular programming languages among the data science professionals. So, if you’re a data science professional who wants to learn machine learning and deep learning with R, then go for this Learning Path.

Packt’s Video Learning Path is a series of individual video products put together in a logical and stepwise manner such that each video builds on the skills learned in the video before it.

The highlights of this Learning Path are:

*Classify data with the help of statistical methods such as k-NN Classification, logistic regression, and decision trees**Learn to develop machine learning applications and distributed jobs with SparkR**Dive deeper into deep learning and artificial neural networks*

Let’s take a quick look at your learning journey. This Learning Path starts off by explaining different learning methods such as clustering, classification, model evaluation, and performance metrics. You will then dive into the general structure of the clustering algorithms and develop applications in the R environment by using clustering and classification algorithms for real-life problems.

Next, you will explore elements of deep learning neural networks, types of deep learning networks, and frameworks used for deep learning applications with building an application in TensorFlow package. You will learn to develop machine learning applications and distributed jobs with SparkR.

Moving ahead, this Learning Path teaches you how to leverage deep learning to make sense of your raw data by exploring various hidden layers of data. You will understand the basics of deep learning and artificial neural networks. You will then explore advanced ANN’s and RNN’s. Next, you will deep dive into convolutional neural networks and unsupervised learning. Finally, you will learn about the applications of deep learning in various fields and understand the practical implementations of scalability, HPC, and feature engineering.

*By the end of this Learning Path, you will be able to build powerful machine learning and deep learning applications with the help of R.*
