Generate CUDA^{®} code for deep learning neural networks

Deep learning is a branch of machine learning that teaches computers to do what comes naturally to humans: learn from experience. The learning algorithms use computational methods to “learn” information directly from data without relying on a predetermined equation as a model. Deep learning uses convolutional neural networks (CNNs) to learn useful representations of data directly from images. Neural networks combine multiple nonlinear processing layers, using simple elements operating in parallel and inspired by biological nervous systems. Deep learning models are trained by using a large set of labeled data and neural network architectures that contain many layers, usually including some convolutional layers.

You can use GPU Coder™ in tandem with the Deep Learning Toolbox™ to generate code and deploy CNN on multiple embedded platforms
that use NVIDIA^{®} or ARM^{®} GPU processors. The Deep Learning Toolbox provides simple MATLAB^{®} commands for creating and interconnecting the layers of a deep
neural network. The availability of pretrained networks and examples such as
image recognition and driver assistance applications enable you to use
GPU Coder for deep learning, without expert knowledge on neural
networks, deep learning, or advanced computer vision algorithms.
