Simple Convolutional Neural Network using TensorFlow

2017-09-26 (Tue)

The goal here is to practice building convolutional neural networks to classify notMNIST characters using TensorFlow. As image size become bigger and bigger, it become unpractical to train fully-connected NN because there will be just too many parameters and thus the model will overfit very soon. And CNN solve this problem by weight sharing. We will start by building a CNN with two convolutional layers connected by a fully connected layer and then try also pooling layer and other thing to improve the model performance.
