Object Recognition: Deep Learning and Machine Learning for Computer Vision

7 March 2017
15:00 IST


Object recognition is enabling innovative systems like self-driving cars, image based retrieval, and autonomous robotics. The machine learning and deep learning these systems rely on can be difficult to train, evaluate, and compare.

In this webinar we explore how MATLAB addresses the most common challenges encountered while developing object recognition systems. This webinar will cover new capabilities for deep learning, machine learning and computer vision.

    We will use real-world examples to demonstrate:
  • Training models using large image datasets
  • Training deep neural networks from scratch
  • Using transfer learning to re-use trained deep networks for new tasks
  • Exploring the tradeoffs between machine learning and deep learning
