Using MATLAB and Python Together| Mathworks

About This Video

You’ve heard it before – Python vs MATLAB vs R but in reality, programming languages are often used together! In this hands-on workshop, you’ll learn how to use MATLAB and Python together with practical examples. Specifically, you’ll learn how to: – Call Python libraries from MATLAB – Call user-defined Python commands, scripts, and modules – Manage and convert data between languages – Package MATLAB algorithms to be called from Python

This workshop was conducted by Heather Gorr, Senior Product Marketing Manager, MATLAB and Grace Woolson, Student Competitions Technical Evangelist – Data Science at Mathworks.
