In Deep Learning Toolbox™, you can define network architectures with multiple inputs (for example, networks trained on multiple sources and types of data) or multiple outputs (for example, networks that predicts both classification and regression responses).
Define networks with multiple inputs when the network requires data from multiple sources or in different formats. For example, networks that require image data captured from multiple sensors at different resolutions.
To define and train a deep learning network with multiple inputs, specify the
network architecture using a
layerGraph object and train using the
trainNetwork function by specifying the multiple inputs
For networks with multiple inputs, the datastore must be a
combined or transformed datastore that returns a cell array with
numInputs+1) columns containing the predictors and the responses, where
numInputs is the number of network inputs and
numResponses is the number of responses. For
than or equal to
ith element of the cell
array corresponds to the input
layers is the layer graph defining the network architecture. The last
column of the cell array corresponds to the responses.
If the network also has multiple outputs, then you must define the network as a function and train the network using a custom training loop. for more information, see Multiple-Output Networks.
To make predictions on a trained deep learning network with multiple inputs, use
classify functions and specify the multiple inputs using a
Define networks with multiple outputs for tasks requiring multiple responses in different formats. For example, tasks requiring both categorical and numeric output.
To train a deep learning network with multiple outputs, define the network as a function and train it using a custom training loop. For an example, see Train Network with Multiple Outputs.
To make predictions using a model function, use the model function directly with the trained parameters. For an example, see Make Predictions Using Model Function.
Alternatively, convert the model function to a
functions. With the assembled network, you can use the
DAGNetwork objects which allows you to:
Make predictions with datastore input directly.
Save the network in a MAT file.
Use options provided by the
predict function for
