Neural Network Toolbox™ provides algorithms, pretrained models, and apps to create, train, visualize, and simulate both shallow and deep neural networks. You can perform classification, regression, clustering, dimensionality reduction, time-series forecasting, and dynamic system modeling and control.
Deep learning networks include convolutional neural networks (ConvNets, CNNs), directed acyclic graph (DAG) network topologies, and autoencoders for image classification, regression, and feature learning. For time-series classification and prediction, the toolbox provides long short-term memory (LSTM) deep learning networks. You can visualize intermediate layers and activations, modify network architecture, and monitor training progress.
For small training sets, you can quickly apply deep learning by performing transfer learning with pretrained deep network models (GoogLeNet, AlexNet, VGG16, and VGG19) and models from the Caffe Model Zoo.
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 GPU instances (with MATLAB® Distributed Computing Server™).
