- I don’t understand the different classes you have in a wind speed dataset. If the X_train_n is [50 10500] where each row is a 50-length vector containing wind speeds (numbers) and you’re trying to predict the 51st wind speed, I would expect Y_train to be of shape [1 10500].
- You say Y_train is a categorical matrix of [13 10500] but it’s unclear to me what the categories are and why they didn’t exist for the preceeding 50 samples.

# 1d CNN with classification layer for prediction

I'm working on a thesis work in which i have to predict the wind speeds every 30 minutes with a convolutional neural network.

We have used a dataset of one year of wind speeds every 30 mnutes (around 15000 data), divided in training set (70%) and testing set(30%)

Our aim is to use as input 50 wind speeds to forecast the 51th wind speed ( X_train_n is a matrix [50 10500]), and this is done for the entire dataset, by using cnn with classification layer. The number of classes are 13, so Y_train is a categorical matrix [ 13 10500].

where n_input=50, n_output= 13

X_train_n is reshaped in a 4d matrix: the first column contains the wind speed from 1 to 50, the second one the wind speeds from 2 to 51 and so on.

Y_train is a categorical matrix: 13 classes for each column, where the columns represent the 51th, 52th ecc.. wind speed.

The problem is that matlab gives us the error in the figure.

The Y_train can't be a matrix? it has to be only a vector? how can i solve it?

A couple of details are unclear to me.

Nevertheless, you could try the following suggestions:

Option 1:

If you’re working with categorical data, as the error message says, Y_train must be a categorical vector of shape [1 10500]. Each element of this categorical vector could then represent one of 13 categories.

Have a look at this example of a 5x1 categorical vector where each category is 1 of 3 possibilities.

For a deep learning specific usage, have a look at the digit classification example. Run the example and try the following commands:

net.Layers(end)

Notice that it says classificationOutputLayer with 10 outputs. This represents the 10 possible categories it can take. Try this next:

im = read(imdsValidation);

classify(net, im)

Notice that the output is a categorical scalar and not a 10-length array. If what you’re having is a one-hot encoding of the 13 different classes, use the onehotencode function to convert it into a suitable catergorical array. You could adapt your understanding from this example to suit your use case.

Option 2:
