Examine the latest technological advancements in building a scalable machine-learning model with big data using R. This second edition shows you how to work with a machine-learning algorithm and use it to build a ML model from raw data. You will see how to use R programming with TensorFlow, thus avoiding the effort of learning Python if you are only comfortable with R.
As in the first edition, the authors have kept the fine balance of theory and application of machine learning through various real-world use-cases which gives you a comprehensive collection of topics in machine learning. New chapters in this edition cover time series models and deep learning.

Visual Perception of Music Notation: On-Line and Off-Line Recognition One of the initial challenges in any Optical Music Recognition (OMR) system is
the treatment of the staves. For musicians, stavelines are required to facilitate
reading the notes. For the machine, however, it becomes an obstacle for making
the segmentation of the symbols very difficult. The task of separating

Nanoscale Imaging of Synapses: New Concepts and Opportunities (Neuromethods)
Synapses underlie rapid and flexible neural communication in the brain and they hold the key to understanding higher brain functions in health and disease. Because they are very small and highly dynamic, it is very difficult to study them with traditional techniques. Fortunately, recent ground-breaking advances in optical microscopy (e.g....
