Avinash Nehemiah, Product Marketing Manager for Computer Vision, and Girish Venkataramani, Product Development Manager, both of MathWorks, presents the "Deep Learning and Vision Algorithm Development in MATLAB Targeting Embedded GPUs" tutorial at the May 2017 Embedded Vision Summit.
In this presentation, you'll learn how to adopt a MATLAB-centric workflow to design, verify and deploy your computer vision and deep learning applications onto embedded NVIDIA Tegra-based platforms including Jetson TK1/TX1 and DrivePX boards. The workflow starts with algorithm design in MATLAB, which enjoys universal appeal among engineers and scientists because of its expressive power and ease-of-use. The algorithm may employ deep learning networks augmented with traditional computer vision techniques and can be tested and verified within MATLAB.
Next, a compiler auto-generates portable and optimized CUDA code from the MATLAB algorithm, which is then cross-compiled and deployed to the Tegra board. The workflow affords on-board real-time prototyping and verification controlled through MATLAB. Examples of common computer vision algorithms and deep learning networks are used to describe this workflow, and their performance benchmarks are presented.
