Shounak Mitra, MathWorks’ Product Manager for Deep Learning Toolbox, will be presenting “everything but the training” at ODSC on Thursday, May 2nd at 2 PM in Room 202. Here are some of the highlights of the talk and why you should attend.
In AI and deep learning workflows, a lot of time is spent discussing model design and model training, but the truth is when building an AI-driven system, you’ll most likely spend most of your time on auxiliary tasks such as:
- Data Preparation
- Data Preprocessing
- Model Deployment
In this talk, we will discuss how MATLAB can help with these tasks, and how using MATLAB enhances the TensorFlow experience. The results of each step can quickly be shared with TensorFlow through the Open Neural Network Exchange Format (ONNX). We’ll also show how to call Python from MATLAB and vice-versa.
Data Preparation: Do you have lots of data for your deep learning model, but no labels? You’ll need to label all your data before training a successful model. Shounak will show how MATLAB labeling apps can quickly label 100s of images or signals in no time with labeling automation.
Data Preprocessing: You remember the old saying: Garbage in Garbage Out? This is the golden rule of data preprocessing before training a deep learning model. We have domain-specific capabilities which provide all the preprocessing you need for image data (image normalization, contrast enhancement, and resizing) and signal data (spectrogram and wavelet scalogram) to extract good information from your data.
Model Deployment: MATLAB not only allows you to bring in Models from TensorFlow, but then you can automatically generate highly optimized C/C++ and CUDA code and deploy to hardware, an interesting alternative to manually translating your algorithms into low-level code. You can also deploy the entire integrated application including pre-processing and camera integration.
Not to mention, MATLAB code generation is Fast. With GPU Coder, MATLAB is faster than TensorFlow, MXNet and PyTorch.
Bring your questions about AI, Deep learning, MATLAB, and Python, and we’ll leave time at the end for Q&A.
