What is MATLAB ?

MATLAB is a CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) system that combines a desktop environment devised especially for iterative design and analysis with a programming language that directly expresses array and matrix mathematics. This platform, created by Mathworks, provides programming, simulation, and modeling processes to aid the users in analyzing data, creating models, and developing algorithms. It has tools that are professionally developed and have passed various rigorous testing phases. Each tool is completely documented as well. There are interactive applications that can display how different algorithms work with the data that a user has. Thanks to its scalability, only a small portion of codes require alteration when an analysis is run on GPUs, clusters, and clouds.

MATLAB Benefits


The main benefits of MATLAB are deep learning, image processing, signal processing techniques, beneficial for financial organizations, and suitable for robotics research and engineering. Here are more information:

Deep Learning

MATLAB gives users the ability to design, create, and visualize complex neural networks with just a few lines of code. No big amount of technical knowledge is required to run deployed models that are up to 7x faster than other software of a similar nature. The platform provides the users with access to the latest models such as VGG-16, VGG-19, GoogleNet, ResNet-50, ResNet101, Inception-v3 and AlexNet.

Image processing

The platform is equipped with several tools that allow for image processing and computer vision. An image can be acquired from imaging hardware, get visualized and manipulated through graphical tools, and then exported to embedded software.

Signal processing techniques

For analysis and exploration of time-series data, MATLAB allows the easy usage of signal processing techniques. The platform can provide integrated workflow when developing streaming apps and embedded systems. MATLAB has a wide range of features that can be utilized to develop, test, and implement streaming algorithms for audio, instrumentation, smart sensor, and IoT.

Beneficial for financial organizations

Financial organizations that want high quality, documented, transparent, and replicable stress and risk testing models can benefit greatly from utilizing MATLAB. The software’s tools are easy enough to use that it will only take a few days for a model to be created, which is a big plus in today’s fast-changing business and regulatory environments. It increases an organization’s productivity by creating a model stack that can serve multiple front- and middle-office works as well as multiple compliance systems.

Suitable for robotics research and engineering

MATLAB provides a single integrated platform that is capable of designing and tuning algorithms, modeling real-world systems and automatically generating codes. The developed algorithms can be used to connect their robots to the ROS (Robot Operating System) and controlling them. Control signals are sent by the users and they can also analyze various data types via connection with actuators and sensors.
