Practical Deep Learning for Images, Sensor and Text

Abstract: Deep Learning became known for beating human performance on image classification, and most applications and published examples for deep learning still focus on image processing. However, deep learning nowadays can also be applied successfully to time-series (or sensor) data and text. In this hands-on MATLAB workshop, you will see how easy it is to get started applying deep learning to various data types, including images, text, and time-series data. You’ll use an online MATLAB instance to perform the following tasks:
1. Train deep neural networks on GPUs in the cloud
2. Access and explore pretrained models
3. Build a CNN to solve an image classification problem
4. Use LSTM networks to solve a time-series and text analytics problem.
