Technical Presentation 1: Modulation Classification with Deep Learning

Modulation classification is an important part of applications such as operator regulation, communications anti-jamming, user identification and cognitive radio. You can use deep learning algorithms to classify channel impaired signals. This example shows how to train a deep learning algorithm with synthetically generated channel-impaired waveforms for modulation classification. The example also uses two ADALM-PLUTO radios to test the trained network with real world signals.
