Sivylla is a Product Marketing Manager for AI, who previously researched and interfaced biological neural networks. She writes about machine learning and deep learning methods, how and when to apply these methods, and the interoperability between MATLAB, TensorFlow, and PyTorch.
This is a guest post from Paul Pilotte, technical marketing manager for AI, data science and deep learning.We’re pleased to have been named a "Leader" by Gartner this year, with the furthest placement for "completeness of vision" of all the Leaders in the quadrant. Last year, Gartner recognized MathWorks as a "Visionary", so in our opinion this move into the Leaders quadrant shows strong progress.I wanted to share this news and talk about how, as a key player in the AI landscape, MathWorks thinks differently about AI.AI continues to be a strategic priority for many companies. We certainly see this in the growing number of complex projects we’ve helped our customers complete in the past year, and we expect this trend to continue. See these pages for examples of how customers are using MATLAB for deep learning and machine learning.We’re seeing AI projects expand to include applications across image processing, computer vision, signal and audio processing, robotics, and control systems. The engineering and operations teams we work with are using MATLAB to incorporate AI across the entire system design workflow. Success in developing AI-enabled systems requires more than training an AI model: You also need high-quality data, engineers and scientists focused on AI, and an understanding of the complete AI workflow.We believe our recognition as a Leader in Gartner's 2020 Magic Quadrant for Data Science and Machine Learning demonstrates our ability to help organizations:
Equip teams with limited AI or data science skills as well as those with advanced skills to apply AI successfully
Incorporate AI across the complete system design workflow including data preparation, analytics and modeling, simulation and test, and production
Deploy AI models on embedded devices, edge, enterprise systems, and the cloud
Use Simulink to tackle system design, integration, and validation challenges when developing AI-driven systems
We continue to invest in creating tools and solutions to make it easy to design and build models, train and visualize networks, and deploy models to more hardware targets as well as enterprise systems and cloud. Here’s a sample of what’s new in MATLAB for deep learning:
Automate labeling data including images, videos, signals, and audio recordings
Graphically design and analyze deep learning using the Deep Network Designer app
Build advanced network architectures like GANs, Siamese networks, attention networks, and variational autoencoders
Import and export models with other deep learning frameworks (such as TensorFlow and PyTorch) using the ONNX model format
Train reinforcement learning policies to implement controllers and decision-making algorithms for complex systems such as robots and autonomous systems
Automate deployment of inference models to CPUs, GPUs, and FPGAs.
See the Latest Features for more and keep an eye out for our upcoming R2020a release.There’s much more to come. We’ll continue to release new features in our products, focused on making MATLAB an easy and productive environment for AI.To learn more check out these pages:
