If you’re new to torch, deep learning, or both, we recommend checking out our comprehensive book Deep Learning and Scientific Computing with R torch, available both online and in print form from CRC Press. It covers the basics (tensors, autograd, modules…), then works through popular deep-learning applications such as image segmentation, regression on tabular data, sound classification, and time-series forecasting. (And there’s more – see below.)

Still on the topic on basics and neural networks, for more practice with torch , you might want to give our learnr tutorials a try.

Deep learning is not the only thing, however, you can do with torch. The aforementioned book, in its third part, uses torch for least-squares solution via matrix decomposition, to compute the Discrete Fourier Transform, and for the purpose of wavelet analysis.
