Neural network models are structured as a series of layers that reflect the way the brain processes information. The neural network classifiers available in Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox™ are fully connected, feedforward neural networks for which you can adjust the size of the fully connected layers and change the activation functions of the layers.
To train a neural network classification model, use the Classification Learner app. For greater flexibility, train a neural network classifier using
fitcnet in the command-line interface. After training, you can classify new data by passing the model and the new predictor data to
If you want to create more complex deep learning networks and have Deep Learning Toolbox™, you can try the Deep Network Designer (Deep Learning Toolbox) app.
