31 May 2017
8:30 – 12:45


Using Data Analytics to turn large volumes of complex data into actionable information can help you improve engineering design and decision-making processes. However, developing effective analytics and integrating them into business systems can be challenging. In this seminar, you will learn approaches and techniques available in MATLAB to tackle these challenges.

If you are using MATLAB for solving your computational problems, you may also want to extend your impact beyond your desktop, by sharing your custom MATLAB functionality with others. Whether you need to protect your intellectual property or generate readable ANSI C code, MathWorks provides a flexible range of options for sharing your MATLAB programs as C code, executables or software components.
