While deep learning can achieve state-of-the-art accuracy for object recognition and object detection, it can be difficult to train, evaluate and compare deep learning models. Deep learning also requires a significant amount of data and computational resources.

In this webinar, we will explore how MATLAB addresses the most common deep learning challenges and gain insight into the procedure for training accurate deep learning models. We will cover new capabilities for deep learning and computer vision for object recognition and object detection.


We will use real-world examples to demonstrate:

  • Accessing and managing large sets of images
  • Using visualization to gain insight into the training process
  • Leveraging pre-trained networks to perform new recognition tasks using transfer learning
  • Speeding up the training process using GPUs and Parallel Computing Toolbox

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
