Section: Crisp talk Technical level: Intermediate
Deep learning is now within reach for anyone to use!
We will explore real-world applications of deep learning by showing demos of transfer learning and real-time object recognition. Deep learning models can be difficult to train, evaluate and compare. In this session we will explore how MATLAB addresses the most common challenges such as handling large sets of images and retraining existing network architectures.
We’ll highlight the computer vision workflow using Deep Learning with MATLAB including:
1.Accessing and managing large sets of images
2.Leveraging the use of pre-trained networks for transfer learning
3.Using standard computer vision techniques to augment the use of deep learning
4.Speeding up the training process using GPUs
