**How to Tune hidden_dropout_ratios in h2o.grid in R**

In this blog post, we will explore how to tune the `hidden_dropout_ratios`

parameter in H2O’s `h2o.grid`

when building a neural network model in R. We’ll break down the topic so that even a beginner can understand it, and you’ll learn the importance of tuning this hyperparameter to improve model performance. We’ll also provide an example code snippet and tips on how to evaluate your results. If you are just starting out, don’t worry—we’ll cover all the basics!

# Introduction

If you’re new to machine learning and neural networks, you might not have heard of terms like “dropout” or “hyperparameter tuning.” This guide will break everything down, from the basics to more advanced topics. We will focus on using the `h2o.grid`

function in R, specifically on tuning a parameter called `hidden_dropout_ratios`

in neural network models. By the end of this post, you’ll know what hidden_dropout_ratios are and how to set them up to improve your model.
