I am following a documentation of Gesture Recognition using Videos and Deep Learning. Currently stuck at creating minibatches because of this error "Undefined function 'DispatchInBackgroundDatastore' for input arguments of type ''."
The line is
datastore = DispatchInBackgroundDatastore(datastore, p.NumWorkers);
Tried looking up DispatchInBackgroundDatastore() function in matlab help, it seems like it nonexistent except in the video classification documentation. Where does this function come from?
function mbq = createMiniBatchQueue(datastore, numOutputs, params)
if params.DispatchInBackground && isempty(gcp('nocreate'))
% Start a parallel pool, if DispatchInBackground is true, to dispatch
% data i n the background using the parallel pool.
c = parcluster('local');
c.NumWorkers = params.NumWorkers;
p = gcp('nocreate');
if ~isempty(p)
datastore = DispatchInBackgroundDatastore(datastore, p.NumWorkers);

As per my understanding, you are facing an undefined function error for DispatchInBackgroundDatastore while following the example Gesture Recognition using Videos and Deep Learning.
‘DispatchInBackgroundDatastore’ is not a MATLAB function, but is provided as a part of this example, as mentioned in ‘Specify Training Options’ subsection of ‘Train a Video Classifier for Gesture Recognition’ section. In order to avoid the undefined function error, you can open the example in MATLAB by typing the following in the Command Window,
This will add the ‘DispatchInBackgroundDatastore’ to the path.
