# Artificial Neural Networks tutorial – theory & applications

Machine learning algorithm (ANN) – simplified. See the use cases with R to understand the application

This course aims to simplify concepts of Artificial Neural Network (ANN). ANN mimics the process of thinking. Using it’s inherent structure, ANN can solve multitude of problem like binary classifications problem, multi level classification problem etc.

What you’ll learn

• Basics of Artificial Neural Network (ANN).
• Terms and defintions associated with ANN.
• How does ANN work.
• How to solve binary classification problem using artificial neural network in R.
• How to solve multi level classification problem using artificial neural network in R.
• Data treatment guideline for using ANN.
• Pros and Cons of Neural Network.
