Deep Learning with Keras

Moorissa Tjokro


I will be using the Keras Sequential Interface and the following datasets to run two multilayer perceptron models and two convolutional neural network models for building models:

  • Iris
  • SVHN
  • Pets dataset with a variety of dog types.


Codes can be found in github folders

Task 1

The first model is built using a multilayer perceptron (feed forward neural network) with two hidden layers and rectified linear nonlinearities on the iris dataset. The model is then selected on an independent test-set.


  • Test loss score: 0.121
  • Test accuracy score: 0.974

Task 2

The second model is built using a multilayer perceptron on the MNIST dataset. The “vanilla” model is then compared with a model using drop-out to see if there is any improvements. The scoring evaluation and result visualization of the learning curves can be found below:

Model with No Dropout

  • Test loss for No Dropout: 0.237
  • Test Accuracy for No Dropout: 0.975

Model with Dropout

  • Test loss for Dropout: 0.119
  • Test Accuracy for Dropout: 0.976

Learning curves between drop out and no dropout:

Dropout No Dropout

Task 3

The third model uses convolutional neural network on the SVHN dataset using a single digit classification. The model is built using batch normalization, which will then be compared with other approaches.

Base model without Batch Normalization

  • Accuracy on test set: 86.34% Without Batch

Base model with Batch Normalization

  • Accuracy on test set: 85.23% With Batch

Task 4

The next dataset will be the largest in size, as we will be working with the 37 class classification task using pets dataset. The weights of a pre-trained convolutional neural network like AlexNet or VGG will be used for feature extraction and linear modeling. The weights are then loaded into keras and features are computed using a forward pass to be then stored in disk. Then a linear model or MLP will be trained on the resulting features.

  • Accuracy score on test set: 0.8765
