Many CNN networks presented in scientific papers have something called a flatten layer. It seems to me that the MATLAB equivalent of this layer is a flattenLayer, but it does not work with images. Is there any way to easily implement a network that works with images with a flatten layer in MATLAB?
In MATLAB, in many cases, you don't need a flattern layer. Flattern layers are often used before a fully connected layer. The fully connected layer in MATLAB will "auto flatten" in some sense and thus the flattern layer is not needed.
