I need to install the Deep Learning Toolbox Model for VGG-16 Network from the command line because I don't have a GUI. Anyone can help? Thanks in advance.

Hi Pablo,
There are 2 ways which you could get VGG-16 from the command line:
Approach1: This approach will get you the network, but not all of the support package. It won't show up as a preinstalled model in Deep Network designed, but you can load it manually:
To get the network, run this code in MATLAB:
vgg19_18a_tar_gz = matlab.internal.examples.downloadSupportFile( "nnet", "/data/vgg19_18a.tar.gz" )
vgg19_18a_tar = gunzip(vgg19_18a_tar_gz)
vgg19_18a = untar(vgg19_18a_tar{1})
load vgg19
I hope this helps,

Hi David, how to access such a central repository so that I can download any other pre-trained network? I would like to use the pre-trrained resnet50 but just replacing it in the above command didn't work.
