I was looking into the possibility of making a spin-to-win prize wheel in MATLAB. I was looking around, and if someone has made one before they haven't shared. A labeled colored spinning wheel, that would slow down and stop (or I would take just stopping) at a random spot each time. I would love any tips or links to helpful resources!
Many of the examples in the MATLAB documentation are extremely high quality articles, often worthy of attention in their own right. Time to start celebrating them! Today's is how to increase Image Resolution using deep learning

Struct is an easy way to combine different types of variants. But now MATLAB supports classes well, and I think class is always a better alternative than struct. I can't find a single scenario that struct is necessary. There are many shortcomings using structs in a project, e.g. uncontrollable field names, unexamined values, etc. What's your opinion?

I am confused, is the matlab answer better or Julia’s?

MathWorks just released three new courses on Coursera liseted below. If you work with image or video data and are wanting to incorporate deep learning techniques into your workflow, this is a great opporutnity. The course creators monitor the discussion forums, so you can ask questions and get feedback on your work. Below are links to the three courses and a quick description of a project you'll complete in each.
  1. Introduction to Computer Vision for Deep Learning. You'll train a classifier to classify images of people signing the American Sign Language alphabet.
  2. Deep Learning for Object Detection. Move from just classification to finding object locations. You'll train a model to find different types of parking available on the MathWorks campus.
  3. Advanced Deep Learning Techniques for Computer Vision. You'll train anomaly detection models for medical images and use AI-assisted labeling auto label images.
Hello Community!
We are working on a new translation experience for the MathWorks website and products. The goal is to make it easy for people to see content in the best language for them.
Step 1 is learning from those of you who use another language instead of, or in addition to English. If this sounds like you, we'd love your response to a brief survey.
Feel free to comment here as well. Thanks in advance!
We've released an open-source implementation of STIPA (Speech Transmission Index for Public Address) on GitHub!
What is STIPA?
Speech Transmission Index is a metric designed to assess the quality of speech transmission through a communication channel. It quantifies the intelligibility of speech signals based on amplitude modulations, providing a standardized measure crucial for evaluating public address systems and communication equipment. STIPA is a version of STI using a simplified measurement method and only one test signal.
Quality Representation:
STI values range from 0 to 1, categorizing speech transmission quality from bad to excellent. The raw STI score can be transformed into the likelihood of intelligibility of syllables, words, and sentences being comprehended.
Verification Tests:
To ensure reliability, we've conducted verification tests according to the IEC 60286-16 standard. Download the test signals and run the stipaVerificationTests.m script from our GitHub repository.
Control Measurements:
We've performed comparative measurements in a university auditorium, showcasing the validity of our implementation.
Our STIPA implementation is distributed under the GNU General Public License 3, reflecting our commitment to open-source collaboration.

Is MathWorks going to spend 5 years starting in 2024 making Python the #1 supported language?
I'm not sure it's authentic information, and am looking forward to a high level of integration with python.

good afternoon everyone my name is Dundu lawan haruna ,i'm a final year student at the department of computer engineering ABU Zaria, Nigerian , and i wanted to do my final year project based on computer vision : project topic , designing an eye glasses to help those people with visual imparement to be able to navigate enviroment efficiently , that's why i need a support from you guys ,all advised are highly well come , thank you for your support.
Recently, I came across a post about the JIT compiler on this Korean blog. In the post. The writer discussed the concept of the "Compile Threshold" and how it is calculated.
"The JVM accumulates the number of calls for each method called and compiles when the number exceeds a certain number. In other words, there is a standard for checking how often it is called and then deciding, 'It is time to compile.' This standard is called the compilation threshold. But what is this and why should it be used as a standard?"
The concept of the "Compile Threshold," as used above, seems to be more commonly associated with Tracing just-in-time compilation.
The writer used the simple Java code below to calculate the threshold.
for (int i = 0; i < 500; ++i) {
long startTime = System.nanoTime();
for (int j = 0; j < 1000; ++j) {
new Object();
long endTime = System.nanoTime();
System.out.printf("%d\t%d\n", i, endTime - startTime);
Since the MATLAB execution engine uses JIT compilation, I just wanted to perform the same experiment that the writer did.
I experimented using simple codes based on the code in the blog. I iterated a function 500 time using for-loop and calculated the execution time for each iteration using tic and toc. Then I plotted the execution time for each loop as blow. First five execution times are much higher than followings (10 times!) The test is very rough so I am not sure that I can conclude "MATLAB has Compile Threshold and it is 5!" but this value is actually correct ;-)
t0 = 0;
tfinal = 10;
y0 = [20;20];
timeToRun = zeros(500,1);
for i = 1:500
tStart = tic;
[preypeaks,predatorpeaks] = solvelotka(t0, tfinal, y0);
tEnd = toc(tStart);
timeToRun(i) = tEnd;
VS Code Extension for MATLAB was introduced back in April and has been downloaded 75K times since. Do people here use VS Code for writing MATLAB code?
Earlier this year a bunch of MATLAB users got together to talk about their hobbies in a lightning talk format.
  • Using "UIHTML" to create app components and Lightning
  • Creating generative art with MATLAB
  • Making MATLAB run on the Steam Deck (it was a wager)
Do you use MATLAB for hobbies?

Are there Matlab features which intend to satisfy your needs but fail in certain critical areas, forcing you to abandon them completely in favor of your own version or a 3rd party alternative? Perhaps these features are starting to improve with new Matlab releases, but not quickly enough? Share your own frustrations in the comments below.
Here are two of mine:
1. volumeViewier
volumeViewer is 6 years old now. It is fine when you only need to view one 3D image at a time, but I never do. In my work, I am putting several images side-by-side for visual comparison. For such work, you need to be able to programmatically change axis limits and grayscale and use linkprop to reflect these changes across all the images. With 2D image comparison, all that is possible, but volumeViewer supports none of those things. So, I resort to my own 3D viewer
2.Tomographic projection commands RADON and FANBEAM
These commands are provided in the Image Processing Toolbox seemingly for no other reason than to support homework exercises for people taking introductory tomographic imaging courses. They fail in a number of ways for people who need to do serious tomographic imaging work, producing artifacts or nonlinear effects which shouldn't be there. See for example Why isn't FANBEAM linear? or Radon Transform works unexpectedly. Moreover, the toolbox still provides tomographic projectors only for 2D imaging not 3D, even though 64-bit RAM has made volumetric imaging commonplace in Matlab for at least 10 years. Luckily, there are now freely available 3rd party alternatives like TIGRE.

Have you ever learned that something you were doing manually in MATLAB was already possible using a built-in feature? Have you ever written a function only to later realize (or be told) that a built-in function already did what you needed?
Two such moments come to mind for me.
1. Did you realize that you can set conditional breakpoints? Neither did I, until someone showed me that feature. To do that, open or create a file in the editor, right click on a line number for any line that contains code, and select Set Conditional Breakpoint... This will bring up a dialog wherein you can type any logical condition for which execution should be paused. Before I learned about this, I would manually insert if-statements during debugging. Then, after fixing each bug, I would have to delete those statements. This built-in feature is so much better.
2. Have you ever needed to plot horizontal or vertical lines in a plot? For the longest time, I would manually code such lines. Then, I learned about xline() and yline(). Not only is less code required, these lines automatically span the entire axes while zooming, panning, or adjusting axis limits!
Share your own Aha! moments below. This will help everyone learn about MATLAB functionality that may not be obvious or front and center.
(Note: While File Exchange contains many great contributions, the intent of this thread is to focus on built-in MATLAB functionality.)

The carot symbol on my keyboard (ˆ shift+6) doesn't work on matlab. Matlab doesn't recognize it so I can't write any equation with power symbol. I tried every possible solution on the web and it doesn't work. even in the character viewer I don't have any result when I search ''caret".
