For over a year, R has had excellent support for this capability via a series of interrelated packages (keras, tfestimators, tensorflow, tfdatasets). Check out https://tensorflow.rstudio.com/ Then come join us for the first part of a two-part talk on using R and TensorFlow. Hadley Wickham famously said, “it’s not that we don’t test our code, it’s that we don’t store our tests so they can be re-run automatically.
