Deep Learning with MATLAB : Real-time Object Recognition and Transfer Learning

Dr. Coorous Mohtadi


Coorous Mohtadi is the EMEA Manager of MathWorks technical specialist team supporting universities focusing on the application of MATLAB and Simulink in laboratories and curriculum development. He is interested in finding synergies between industry and academia. He has been supporting research, design and development in universities and industry for the last 11 years at MathWorks. Prior to joining MathWorks in 2007, Coorous was the European technical manager for temperature, process control, and component products at Omron Electronics Europe and the chief control engineer at Eurotherm Controls. During 1980s he was also a postdoctoral research fellow at University of Oxford, U.K. and University of Alberta, Canada. Coorous holds a D.Phil. in model-based predictive control and Masters in engineering science, both from University of Oxford. His paper on generalised predictive control has over 3500 citations and his industrial algorithms forms the core of extremely successful Eurotherm Controls 2000 series of products.


Deep learning can achieve state-of-the-art accuracy for many tasks considered algorithmically unsolvable using traditional machine learning, including classifying objects in a scene or recognizing optimal paths in an... [ view full abstract ]
