A simple neural network in R to predict the square root of numbers.
library(caret)
# Generate 50 random numbers uniformly distributed between 0 and 100.
training <- data.frame(x = runif(50, min=0, max=100))
training$y <- sqrt(training$x)
# Generate some squared numbers.
cv <- data.frame(x = (1:10)^2)
cv$y <- sqrt(cv$x)
fit <- train(y ~ ., data = training, method = 'neuralnet', tuneGrid = expand.grid(layer1 = c(6), layer2 = 0, layer3 = 0))
results <- predict(fit, newdata = cv)
conf <- table(results, cv$y)
cbind(cv, predict = round(predict(fit, newdata = cv)))
