Getting Started with Deep Learning Toolbox

Create, analyze, and train deep learning networks

Deep Learning Toolbox™ provides a framework for designing and implementing deep neural networks with algorithms, pretrained models, and apps. You can use convolutional neural networks (ConvNets, CNNs) and long short-term memory (LSTM) networks to perform classification and regression on image, time-series, and text data. Apps and plots help you visualize activations, edit network architectures, and monitor training progress.

For small training sets, you can perform transfer learning with pretrained deep network models (including SqueezeNet, Inception-v3, ResNet-101, GoogLeNet, and VGG-19) and models imported from TensorFlow™-Keras and Caffe.

To speed up training on large datasets, you can distribute computations and data across multicore processors and GPUs on the desktop (with Parallel Computing Toolbox™), or scale up to clusters and clouds, including Amazon EC2® P2, P3, and G3 GPU instances (with MATLAB® Parallel Server™).

Deep Learning Onramp
This free, two-hour deep learning tutorial provides an interactive introduction to practical deep learning methods. You will learn to use deep learning techniques in MATLAB for image recognition.


Interactively Modify a Deep Learning Network for Transfer Learning
Deep Network Designer is a point-and-click tool for creating or modifying deep neural networks. This video shows how to use the app in a transfer learning workflow. It demonstrates the ease with which you can use the tool to modify the last few layers in the imported network as opposed to modifying the layers in the command line. You can check the modified architecture for errors in connections and property assignments using a network analyzer.
