I am trying to use the Neural Net Pattern Recognition toolbox in MATLAB for recognizing different types of classes in my dataset. I have a 21392 x 4 table, with the columns 1-3 which I would like to use as predictors and the 4th column has the labels with 14 different categories (strings like Angry, Sad, Happy, Neutral etc.). It seems that the Neural Net Pattern Recognition toolbox, unlike the MATLAB Classification Learner toolbox doesn't allow me to import the table and automatically extract the predictors and responses from it. Moreover, I am unable to either specify the inputs and targets to the neural network manually as it isn't showing up in the options.
I looked into the examples like the Iris Dataset, Wine Dataset, Cancer Dataset etc., but all of them only have 2-3 classes as outputs which are being Identified and the labels are not string type unlike mine like Angry, Sad, Happy, Neutral etc. (total 14 different classes). I would like to know how I can use my table as input to the neural network pattern recognition toolbox, or otherwise, any way in which I can extract the data from my table and use it in the toolbox. I am new to using the toolbox, so any help in this regard would be highly appreciated. Thanks!
