Introduction to Neural Networks

This Blog entry is from the Neural Networks section in Learn R.

Neural networks are a universal predictive analytics method, if a little unexplained when they grow large.  Unlike many of the predictive analytics techniques presented, Neural Networks are as equally good at classification problems as they are prediction problems.  This section of Blog entries will use the FDX and FraudRisk datasets, seeking to showcase the improvement that can be obtained in using Neural Networks, albeit with an increase in complexity.
