AlexNet is a pretrained Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) that has been trained on approximately 1.2 million images from the ImageNet Dataset (http://image-net.org/index). The model has 23 layers and can classify images into 1000 object categories (e.g. keyboard, mouse, coffee mug, pencil).
Opening the alexnet.mlpkginstall file from your operating system or from within MATLAB will initiate the installation process for the release you have.
This mlpkginstall file is functional for R2016b and beyond. Use alexnet instead of imagePretrainedNetwork if using a release prior to R2024a.
Usage Example:
% Access the trained model
[net, classes] = imagePretrainedNetwork("alexnet");
% See details of the architecture
net.Layers
% Read the image to classify
I = imread('peppers.png');
% Adjust size of the image
sz = net.Layers(1).InputSize
I = I(1:sz(1),1:sz(2),1:sz(3));
% Classify the image using AlexNet
scores = predict(net, single(I));
label = scores2label(scores, classes)
% Show the image and the classification results
figure
imshow(I)
text(10,20,char(label),'Color','white')
