Deep Learning with MATLAB Coder

Generate C++ code for deep learning neural networks (requires Deep Learning Toolbox™)

Deep learning is a branch of machine learning that teaches computers to do what comes naturally to humans: learn from experience. The learning algorithms use computational methods to “learn” information directly from data without relying on a predetermined equation as a model. Deep learning uses convolutional neural networks (CNNs) to learn useful representations of data directly from images.

You can use MATLAB® Coder™ with Deep Learning Toolbox to generate C++ code from a trained CNN. You can deploy the generated code to an embedded platform that uses an Intel® or ARM® processor.

Deep Learning with MATLAB Coder is not supported in MATLAB Online™.
