Apply statistics and machine learning methods to industry-specific workflows

Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox™ provides tools to describe, analyze, and model data. Apply these tools, in combination with other MATLAB® toolboxes, to perform industry-specific workflows. Some of the application areas include:

  • Aerospace — Explore radar and other signals, detect anomalies, and build predictive models.

  • Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical — Analyze clinical data, and perform modeling and simulation for drug discovery and development.

  • Communications and Signal Processing — Classify audio and other signals, and model wireless devices and integrated circuits.

  • Energy Production — Forecast energy demand, monitor production equipment, and optimize processing of chemicals in oil and gas.

  • Industrial Automation and Machinery — Apply multivariate statistics and predictive modeling to industrial process data, monitor manufacturing processes and product quality, and improve utilization and yields.

  • Medical Devices — Build interpretable machine learning algorithms on biomedical time series and image data for developing applications while complying with regulatory standards.

  • Quantitative Finance and Risk Management — Train, compare, and optimize models for algorithmic trading, asset allocation, credit risk, and fraud detection.
