Deep learning in MATLAB


This training video is the fourth part of the complete course of deep learning in MATLAB.

This section is dedicated to implementing and programming deep learning models in MATLAB.

In 2020, MATLAB renamed its neural network toolbox to Deep Learning. This change shows MATLAB’s high motivation to provide a strong toolkit for its users.

Deep Learning workflow in MATLAB

Deep learning in MATLAB provides you with a convenient tool for designing and implementing deep neural networks with pre-trained algorithms and models. You can use convolutional neural networks (ConvNet, CNN) and long-term short-term memory (LSTM) for image classification and regression and time series and textual data.

You can create network structures such as generative adversarial networks (GANs) and Siamese networks using automatic differentiation and custom training loops and split weights.

With the Deep Network Designer tool, you can automatically design, analyze, and train deep neural networks without coding.

Deep Learning MATLAB

Using the Experiment Manager tool, you can manage multiple in-depth learning experiences, track training parameters in each experience, analyze results, compare production codes, and select the best model. This tool gives users a great ability to perform a version control task. In a real deep learning task, finding the right parameters for a model is very time-consuming and it is necessary that the parameters are saved each time the code is executed to finally find the best parameter by comparing different performances. You can easily do this with the help of the experience management tools.

With the deep learning tool, you can view the deep learning model and see the different layers and conversion functions of each layer. So you can easily see the structure of your model and get a good understanding of the deep learning model.

With MATLAB Deep Learning Toolbox, you can create connections with other deep learning programming tools such as TensorFlow™ and PyTorch. Python programmers now use TensorFlow ™ and PyTorch, so you can import models built into these libraries into MATLAB and use them as a MATLAB model. The communication format is ONNX, which can import models from TensorFlow-Keras and Caffe into MATLAB.

This toolbox supports Transfer Learning with DarkNet-53, ResNet-50, NASNet, SqueezeNet and other pre-trained models. As stated in the Deep Learning Tutorial video, this feature prevents you from inventing the wheel from scratch and easily creating advanced models and achieving very high efficiencies.

Using in-depth learning in MATLAB, you can streamline your model training process on one GPU or multiple GPUs. This feature is done with the help of MATLAB parallel processing toolbox. You can also use the cloud, including NVIDIA®GPU Cloud and Amazon EC2®GPU. This feature is done with the MATLAB Parallel Server toolbox.
