I would like to know if Intel Xeon Phi hardware is supported by the Parallel Computing Toolbox in the last releases (Matlab 2016a). I mean, I would like to use the multi-core architecture of Intel Xeon Phi in the same way that I can use the multi-cores in my workstation, for example with a parfor loop.

Just contacted technical support and they confirmed that as of this release the Parallel Computing Toolbox does not support Xeon Phi Coprocessors. Therefore it is not possible to use the Phi cores as additional workers through functions such as parfor().
