A simple example of a four-class image classifier using a small dataset (320 images of flowers: 80 sample x 4 categories) and a very simple CNN, with and without data augmentation.

The main goal of this example is to demonstrate the use of the MATLAB functionality for data augmentation in image classification solutions: the augmentedImageDatastore and the imageDataAugmenter.

This example should be easy to modify and expand to the user's needs.

Notes:
- The validation accuracy improves -- from ~79% (Part 1 in the code) to ~83% (Part 2) -- using a very simple CNN, as a result of data augmentation alone.
- Interestingly enough, using a pretrained AlexNet, the validation accuracy drops -- from 100% (Part 3) to ~98% (Part 4) -- which shows that data augmentation wouldn't be necessary in this case.
