The Product Spotlight

Deep Learning


1200-x-628 Inner Image

This week we tilt our spotlight to a product created by renowned software company, MathWorks. MATLAB for Artificial Intelligence is used to design AI models and AI-driven systems.

MATLAB can be used for a range of applications, including deep learning and machine learning, signal processing and communications, image and video processing, control systems, test and measurement, computational finance, and computational biology. This article is focused on MATLAB for Deep Learning.

What is Deep Learning?
Deep learning is a machine learning technique that teaches computers to do what comes naturally to humans: learn by example. In deep learning, a computer model learns directly from pictures, text, or sound to perform classification tasks.

How does MATLAB assist in Deep Learning?
With tools and functions for managing large data sets, MATLAB provides specialized toolboxes for working with machine learning, neural networks, computer vision, and automated driving. With a few lines of code, MATLAB lets one work on deep learning without any expert help.

Prepare and Label Image, Time-Series, and Text Data: MATLAB significantly reduces the time required to preprocess and label datasets with domain-specific apps for audio, video, images, and text data

Simulate and Generate Synthetic Data: Data for accurate models can become really critical. MATLAB is capable of generating more data when there is a paucity of the right scenarios

Deploy Trained Networks: This tool is capable of deploying your trained model on embedded systems, enterprise systems, FPGA devices, or the cloud



Deep learning models can achieve state-of-the-art accuracy, sometimes exceeding human-level performance. Models are trained by using a large set of labeled data and neural network architectures that contain many layers




Use Case

Shell’s transformation using MATLAB’s Distributed Computing Server and Machine Vision Tools


Automated LiDAR Point-Cloud Annotation for Sensor Verification




  • Train deep learning networks for classification, regression, and feature learning on image, time-series, numeric, and text data

  • Build, visualize, experiment with, and analyze deep learning networks using interactive apps

  • Import pre-trained models into MATLAB for inference

  • Visualize training progress & activations of the learned features in a deep learning network

  • Speed up deep learning training using GPU, cloud, & distributed computing

  • Simulate & deploy trained networks to embedded systems or integrate them into production environments

  • Using neural networks with a variety of supervised & unsupervised shallow neural network architectures



MATLAB is a powerful tool that gives organizations, researchers, and experts the flexibility to build deep learning models without having to learn another language. Whether one needs to analyze data, develop algorithms, or create models, MATLAB is designed to assist in all possible ways.

From deploying enterprise applications to running on embedded devices, MATLAB’s solutions cater to a variety of use-cases. All in all, MathWorks does stand true to its words on being one of the leading developers of mathematical computing software for engineers and scientists.
