## 笔记

### L层深层神经网络 L表示神经网络的层数，L=4，n=5，n=5，n=3，n=1

a[L] = activation in Layer L
a[L] = g[L](z[L])，W[L]= weight for Z[L]

### 神经网络的前向传播

Input: a[l-1]
Output: a[l], z[l]
notes: 通过神经网络训练过程可以发现，z[l]在反向传播的过程中也可以利用，所以输出的z[l]以cache(z[l])保存

z[l]=W[l]a[l-1]+b[l]
a[l]=g[l](z[l])

Z[l]=W[l]A[l-1]+b[l]
A[l]=g[l](Z[l])

### 矢量化时保证矩阵维度正确（重要）

W[l]: (n[l], n[l-1])
b[l]: (n[l], 1)
dW[l]: (n[l], n[l-1])
db[l]: (n[l], 1)
Z[l]: (n[l], m)
A[l]: (n[l], m)
dZ[l]: (n[l], m)
dA[l]: (n[l], m)

### 前向传播与反向传播  ### 为什么使用深层表示

#### 直观理解深层网络。 • 通过深层神经网络首先会选取一些边缘信息，例如脸形，眼框，总之是一些边框之类的信息(我自己的理解是之所以先找出边缘信息是为了将要观察的事物与周围环境分割开来)，这也就是第一层的作用。
• 找到边缘信息后，开始放大，将信息聚合在一起。例如找到眼睛轮廓信息后，通过往上一层汇聚从而得到眼睛的信息；同理通过汇聚脸的轮廓信息得到脸颊信息等等
• 在第二步的基础上将各个局部信息(眼睛、眉毛……)汇聚成一张人脸，最终达到人脸识别的效果。

#### 为什么用深层神经网络而不用浅层神经网络 ### 构建深层神经网络块   ### 参数与超参数

• 学习速率
• 迭代次数
• 隐藏层数
• 神经元个数
• 激活函数的选择
• minibatch size
• 正则化方法
• momentum

## 作业

### Building your Deep Neural Network: Step by Step

Welcome to your week 4 assignment (part 1 of 2)! You have previously trained a 2-layer Neural Network (with a single hidden layer). This week, you will build a deep neural network, with as many layers as you want!

• In this notebook, you will implement all the functions required to build a deep neural network.
• In the next assignment, you will use these functions to build a deep neural network for image classification.

After this assignment you will be able to:

• Use non-linear units like ReLU to improve your model
• Build a deeper neural network (with more than 1 hidden layer)
• Implement an easy-to-use neural network class

Notation:

• Superscript $[l]$ denotes a quantity associated with the $l^{th}$ layer.
• Example: $a^{[L]}$ is the $L^{th}$ layer activation. $W^{[L]}$ and $b^{[L]}$ are the $L^{th}$ layer parameters.
• Superscript $(i)$ denotes a quantity associated with the $i^{th}$ example.
• Example: $x^{(i)}$ is the $i^{th}$ training example.
• Lowerscript $i$ denotes the $i^{th}$ entry of a vector.
• Example: $a^{[l]}_i$ denotes the $i^{th}$ entry of the $l^{th}$ layer’s activations).

Let’s get started!

#### 1 - Packages

Let’s first import all the packages that you will need during this assignment.

• numpy is the main package for scientific computing with Python.
• matplotlib is a library to plot graphs in Python.
• dnn_utils provides some necessary functions for this notebook.
• testCases provides some test cases to assess the correctness of your functions
• np.random.seed(1) is used to keep all the random function calls consistent. It will help us grade your work. Please don’t change the seed.

warnings.warn('Matplotlib is building the font cache using fc-list. This may take a moment.')


#### 2 - Outline of the Assignment

To build your neural network, you will be implementing several “helper functions”. These helper functions will be used in the next assignment to build a two-layer neural network and an L-layer neural network. Each small helper function you will implement will have detailed instructions that will walk you through the necessary steps. Here is an outline of this assignment, you will:

• Initialize the parameters for a two-layer network and for an $L$-layer neural network.
• Implement the forward propagation module (shown in purple in the figure below).
• Complete the LINEAR part of a layer’s forward propagation step (resulting in $Z^{[l]}$).
• We give you the ACTIVATION function (relu/sigmoid).
• Combine the previous two steps into a new [LINEAR->ACTIVATION] forward function.
• Stack the [LINEAR->RELU] forward function L-1 time (for layers 1 through L-1) and add a [LINEAR->SIGMOID] at the end (for the final layer $L$). This gives you a new L_model_forward function.
• Compute the loss.
• Implement the backward propagation module (denoted in red in the figure below).
• Complete the LINEAR part of a layer’s backward propagation step.
• We give you the gradient of the ACTIVATE function (relu_backward/sigmoid_backward)
• Combine the previous two steps into a new [LINEAR->ACTIVATION] backward function.
• Stack [LINEAR->RELU] backward L-1 times and add [LINEAR->SIGMOID] backward in a new L_model_backward function
• Finally update the parameters. Figure 1

Note that for every forward function, there is a corresponding backward function. That is why at every step of your forward module you will be storing some values in a cache. The cached values are useful for computing gradients. In the backpropagation module you will then use the cache to calculate the gradients. This assignment will show you exactly how to carry out each of these steps.

#### 3 - Initialization

You will write two helper functions that will initialize the parameters for your model. The first function will be used to initialize parameters for a two layer model. The second one will generalize this initialization process to $L$ layers.

##### 3.1 - 2-layer Neural Network

Exercise: Create and initialize the parameters of the 2-layer neural network.

Instructions:
- The model’s structure is: LINEAR -> RELU -> LINEAR -> SIGMOID.
- Use random initialization for the weight matrices. Use np.random.randn(shape)*0.01 with the correct shape.
- Use zero initialization for the biases. Use np.zeros(shape).

W1 = [[ 0.01624345 -0.00611756 -0.00528172]
[-0.01072969 0.00865408 -0.02301539]]
b1 = [[ 0.]
[ 0.]]
W2 = [[ 0.01744812 -0.00761207]]
b2 = [[ 0.]]

Expected output:

 W1 [[ 0.01624345 -0.00611756 -0.00528172] [-0.01072969 0.00865408 -0.02301539]] b1 [[ 0.] [ 0.]] W2 [[ 0.01744812 -0.00761207]] b2 [[ 0.]]

##### 3.2 - L-layer Neural Network

The initialization for a deeper L-layer neural network is more complicated because there are many more weight matrices and bias vectors. When completing the initialize_parameters_deep, you should make sure that your dimensions match between each layer. Recall that $n^{[l]}$ is the number of units in layer $l$. Thus for example if the size of our input $X$ is $(12288, 209)$ (with $m=209$ examples) then:

 Shape of W Shape of b Activation Shape of Activation Layer 1 $(n^{},12288)$ $(n^{},1)$ $Z^{} = W^{} X + b^{}$ $(n^{},209)$ Layer 2 $(n^{}, n^{})$ $(n^{},1)$ $Z^{} = W^{} A^{} + b^{}$ $(n^{}, 209)$ $\vdots$ $\vdots$ $\vdots$ $\vdots$ $\vdots$ Layer L-1 $(n^{[L-1]}, n^{[L-2]})$ $(n^{[L-1]}, 1)$ $Z^{[L-1]} = W^{[L-1]} A^{[L-2]} + b^{[L-1]}$ $(n^{[L-1]}, 209)$ Layer L $(n^{[L]}, n^{[L-1]})$ $(n^{[L]}, 1)$ $Z^{[L]} = W^{[L]} A^{[L-1]} + b^{[L]}$ $(n^{[L]}, 209)$

Remember that when we compute $W X + b$ in python, it carries out broadcasting. For example, if:

$$W = \begin{bmatrix} j & k & l\\ m & n & o \\ p & q & r \end{bmatrix}\;\;\; X = \begin{bmatrix} a & b & c\\ d & e & f \\ g & h & i \end{bmatrix} \;\;\; b =\begin{bmatrix} s \\ t \\ u \end{bmatrix}\tag{2}$$

Then $WX + b$ will be:

$$WX + b = \begin{bmatrix} (ja + kd + lg) + s & (jb + ke + lh) + s & (jc + kf + li)+ s\\ (ma + nd + og) + t & (mb + ne + oh) + t & (mc + nf + oi) + t\\ (pa + qd + rg) + u & (pb + qe + rh) + u & (pc + qf + ri)+ u \end{bmatrix}\tag{3}$$

Exercise: Implement initialization for an L-layer Neural Network.

Instructions:
- The model’s structure is [LINEAR -> RELU] $\times$ (L-1) -> LINEAR -> SIGMOID. I.e., it has $L-1$ layers using a ReLU activation function followed by an output layer with a sigmoid activation function.
- Use random initialization for the weight matrices. Use np.random.randn(shape) * 0.01.
- Use zeros initialization for the biases. Use np.zeros(shape).
- We will store $n^{[l]}$, the number of units in different layers, in a variable layer_dims. For example, the layer_dims for the “Planar Data classification model” from last week would have been [2,4,1]: There were two inputs, one hidden layer with 4 hidden units, and an output layer with 1 output unit. Thus means W1‘s shape was (4,2), b1 was (4,1), W2 was (1,4) and b2 was (1,1). Now you will generalize this to $L$ layers!
- Here is the implementation for $L=1$ (one layer neural network). It should inspire you to implement the general case (L-layer neural network).

W1 = [[ 0.01788628 0.0043651 0.00096497 -0.01863493 -0.00277388]

#### 4 - Forward propagation module

##### 4.1 - Linear Forward
Now that you have initialized your parameters, you will do the forward propagation module. You will start by implementing some basic functions that you will use later when implementing the model. You will complete three functions in this order:

- LINEAR
- LINEAR -> ACTIVATION where ACTIVATION will be either ReLU or Sigmoid.
- [LINEAR -> RELU] $\times$ (L-1) -> LINEAR -> SIGMOID (whole model)

The linear forward module (vectorized over all the examples) computes the following equations:

$$Z^{[l]} = W^{[l]}A^{[l-1]} +b^{[l]}\tag{4}$$

where $A^{} = X$.

Exercise: Build the linear part of forward propagation.

Reminder:
The mathematical representation of this unit is $Z^{[l]} = W^{[l]}A^{[l-1]} +b^{[l]}$. You may also find np.dot() useful. If your dimensions don’t match, printing W.shape may help.

Z = [[ 3.26295337 -1.23429987]]

Expected output:

 Z [[ 3.26295337 -1.23429987]]

##### 4.2 - Linear-Activation Forward

In this notebook, you will use two activation functions:

- Sigmoid: $\sigma(Z) = \sigma(W A + b) = \frac{1}{ 1 + e^{-(W A + b)}}$. We have provided you with the sigmoid function. This function returns two items: the activation value “a“ and a “cache“ that contains “Z“ (it’s what we will feed in to the corresponding backward function). To use it you could just call:

- ReLU: The mathematical formula for ReLu is $A = RELU(Z) = max(0, Z)$. We have provided you with the relu function. This function returns two items: the activation value “A“ and a “cache“ that contains “Z“ (it’s what we will feed in to the corresponding backward function). To use it you could just call:

For more convenience, you are going to group two functions (Linear and Activation) into one function (LINEAR->ACTIVATION). Hence, you will implement a function that does the LINEAR forward step followed by an ACTIVATION forward step.

Exercise: Implement the forward propagation of the LINEAR->ACTIVATION layer. Mathematical relation is: $A^{[l]} = g(Z^{[l]}) = g(W^{[l]}A^{[l-1]} +b^{[l]})$ where the activation “g” can be sigmoid() or relu(). Use linear_forward() and the correct activation function.

With sigmoid: A = [[ 0.96890023 0.11013289]]
With ReLU: A = [[ 3.43896131 0. ]]

Expected output:

 With sigmoid: A [[ 0.96890023 0.11013289]] With ReLU: A [[ 3.43896131 0. ]]

Note: In deep learning, the “[LINEAR->ACTIVATION]” computation is counted as a single layer in the neural network, not two layers.

##### d) L-Layer Model

For even more convenience when implementing the $L$-layer Neural Net, you will need a function that replicates the previous one (linear_activation_forward with RELU) $L-1$ times, then follows that with one linear_activation_forward with SIGMOID. Figure 2 : [LINEAR -> RELU] $\times$ (L-1) -> LINEAR -> SIGMOID model

Exercise: Implement the forward propagation of the above model.

Instruction: In the code below, the variable AL will denote $A^{[L]} = \sigma(Z^{[L]}) = \sigma(W^{[L]} A^{[L-1]} + b^{[L]})$. (This is sometimes also called Yhat, i.e., this is $\hat{Y}$.)

Tips:
- Use the functions you had previously written
- Use a for loop to replicate [LINEAR->RELU] (L-1) times
- Don’t forget to keep track of the caches in the “caches” list. To add a new value c to a list, you can use list.append(c).

AL = [[ 0.03921668 0.70498921 0.19734387 0.04728177]]
Length of caches list = 3

 AL [[ 0.03921668 0.70498921 0.19734387 0.04728177]] Length of caches list 3

Great! Now you have a full forward propagation that takes the input X and outputs a row vector $A^{[L]}$ containing your predictions. It also records all intermediate values in “caches”. Using $A^{[L]}$, you can compute the cost of your predictions.

#### 5 - Cost function

Now you will implement forward and backward propagation. You need to compute the cost, because you want to check if your model is actually learning.

Exercise: Compute the cross-entropy cost $J$, using the following formula: $$-\frac{1}{m} \sum\limits_{i = 1}^{m} (y^{(i)}\log\left(a^{[L] (i)}\right) + (1-y^{(i)})\log\left(1- a^{L}\right)) \tag{7}$$

cost = 0.414931599615

Expected Output:

 cost 0.414932

#### 6 - Backward propagation module

Just like with forward propagation, you will implement helper functions for backpropagation. Remember that back propagation is used to calculate the gradient of the loss function with respect to the parameters.

Reminder: Figure 3 : Forward and Backward propagation for LINEAR->RELU->LINEAR->SIGMOID
The purple blocks represent the forward propagation, and the red blocks represent the backward propagation.

Now, similar to forward propagation, you are going to build the backward propagation in three steps:

• LINEAR backward
• LINEAR -> ACTIVATION backward where ACTIVATION computes the derivative of either the ReLU or sigmoid activation
• [LINEAR -> RELU] $\times$ (L-1) -> LINEAR -> SIGMOID backward (whole model)
##### 6.1 - Linear backward

For layer $l$, the linear part is: $Z^{[l]} = W^{[l]} A^{[l-1]} + b^{[l]}$ (followed by an activation).

Suppose you have already calculated the derivative $dZ^{[l]} = \frac{\partial \mathcal{L} }{\partial Z^{[l]}}$. You want to get $(dW^{[l]}, db^{[l]} dA^{[l-1]})$. Figure 4

The three outputs $(dW^{[l]}, db^{[l]}, dA^{[l]})$ are computed using the input $dZ^{[l]}$.Here are the formulas you need:
$$dW^{[l]} = \frac{\partial \mathcal{L} }{\partial W^{[l]}} = \frac{1}{m} dZ^{[l]} A^{[l-1] T} \tag{8}$$
$$db^{[l]} = \frac{\partial \mathcal{L} }{\partial b^{[l]}} = \frac{1}{m} \sum_{i = 1}^{m} dZ^{l}\tag{9}$$
$$dA^{[l-1]} = \frac{\partial \mathcal{L} }{\partial A^{[l-1]}} = W^{[l] T} dZ^{[l]} \tag{10}$$

Exercise: Use the 3 formulas above to implement linear_backward().

dA_prev = [[ 0.51822968 -0.19517421]
[-0.40506361  0.15255393]
[ 2.37496825 -0.89445391]]
dW = [[-0.10076895  1.40685096  1.64992505]]
db = [[ 0.50629448]]


Expected Output:

 dA_prev [[ 0.51822968 -0.19517421] [-0.40506361 0.15255393] [ 2.37496825 -0.89445391]] dW [[-0.10076895 1.40685096 1.64992505]] db [[ 0.50629448]]
##### 6.2 - Linear-Activation backward

Next, you will create a function that merges the two helper functions: linear_backward and the backward step for the activation linear_activation_backward.

To help you implement linear_activation_backward, we provided two backward functions:

• sigmoid_backward: Implements the backward propagation for SIGMOID unit. You can call it as follows:
• relu_backward: Implements the backward propagation for RELU unit. You can call it as follows:

If $g(.)$ is the activation function,
sigmoid_backward and relu_backward compute $$dZ^{[l]} = dA^{[l]} * g’(Z^{[l]}) \tag{11}$$.

Exercise: Implement the backpropagation for the LINEAR->ACTIVATION layer.

sigmoid:
dA_prev = [[ 0.11017994  0.01105339]
[ 0.09466817  0.00949723]
[-0.05743092 -0.00576154]]
dW = [[ 0.10266786  0.09778551 -0.01968084]]
db = [[-0.05729622]]

relu:
dA_prev = [[ 0.44090989  0.        ]
[ 0.37883606  0.        ]
[-0.2298228   0.        ]]
dW = [[ 0.44513824  0.37371418 -0.10478989]]
db = [[-0.20837892]]


Expected output with sigmoid:

 dA_prev [[ 0.11017994 0.01105339] [ 0.09466817 0.00949723] [-0.05743092 -0.00576154]] dW [[ 0.10266786 0.09778551 -0.01968084]] db [[-0.05729622]]

Expected output with relu:

 dA_prev [[ 0.44090989 0. ] [ 0.37883606 0. ] [-0.2298228 0. ]] dW [[ 0.44513824 0.37371418 -0.10478989]] db [[-0.20837892]]
##### 6.3 - L-Model Backward

Now you will implement the backward function for the whole network. Recall that when you implemented the L_model_forward function, at each iteration, you stored a cache which contains (X,W,b, and z). In the back propagation module, you will use those variables to compute the gradients. Therefore, in the L_model_backward function, you will iterate through all the hidden layers backward, starting from layer $L$. On each step, you will use the cached values for layer $l$ to backpropagate through layer $l$. Figure 5 below shows the backward pass. Figure 5 : Backward pass

Initializing backpropagation:
To backpropagate through this network, we know that the output is,
$A^{[L]} = \sigma(Z^{[L]})$. Your code thus needs to compute dAL $= \frac{\partial \mathcal{L}}{\partial A^{[L]}}$.
To do so, use this formula (derived using calculus which you don’t need in-depth knowledge of):

You can then use this post-activation gradient dAL to keep going backward. As seen in Figure 5, you can now feed in dAL into the LINEAR->SIGMOID backward function you implemented (which will use the cached values stored by the L_model_forward function). After that, you will have to use a for loop to iterate through all the other layers using the LINEAR->RELU backward function. You should store each dA, dW, and db in the grads dictionary. To do so, use this formula :

$$grads[“dW” + str(l)] = dW^{[l]}\tag{15}$$

For example, for $l=3$ this would store $dW^{[l]}$ in grads["dW3"].

Exercise: Implement backpropagation for the [LINEAR->RELU] $\times$ (L-1) -> LINEAR -> SIGMOID model.

dW1 = [[ 0.41010002  0.07807203  0.13798444  0.10502167]

##### 6.4 - Update Parameters

In this section you will update the parameters of the model, using gradient descent:

$$W^{[l]} = W^{[l]} - \alpha \text{ } dW^{[l]} \tag{16}$$
$$b^{[l]} = b^{[l]} - \alpha \text{ } db^{[l]} \tag{17}$$

where $\alpha$ is the learning rate. After computing the updated parameters, store them in the parameters dictionary.

Exercise: Implement update_parameters() to update your parameters using gradient descent.

Instructions:
Update parameters using gradient descent on every $W^{[l]}$ and $b^{[l]}$ for $l = 1, 2, …, L$.

#### 7 - Conclusion

Congrats on implementing all the functions required for building a deep neural network!

We know it was a long assignment but going forward it will only get better. The next part of the assignment is easier.

In the next assignment you will put all these together to build two models:

• A two-layer neural network
• An L-layer neural network

You will in fact use these models to classify cat vs non-cat images!

### Deep Neural Network for Image Classification: Application

When you finish this, you will have finished the last programming assignment of Week 4, and also the last programming assignment of this course!

You will use use the functions you’d implemented in the previous assignment to build a deep network, and apply it to cat vs non-cat classification. Hopefully, you will see an improvement in accuracy relative to your previous logistic regression implementation.

After this assignment you will be able to:

• Build and apply a deep neural network to supervised learning.

Let’s get started!

#### 1 - Packages

Let’s first import all the packages that you will need during this assignment.

• numpy is the fundamental package for scientific computing with Python.
• matplotlib is a library to plot graphs in Python.
• h5py is a common package to interact with a dataset that is stored on an H5 file.
• PIL and scipy are used here to test your model with your own picture at the end.
• dnn_app_utils provides the functions implemented in the “Building your Deep Neural Network: Step by Step” assignment to this notebook.
• np.random.seed(1) is used to keep all the random function calls consistent. It will help us grade your work.

warnings.warn('Matplotlib is building the font cache using fc-list. This may take a moment.')


#### 2 - Dataset

You will use the same “Cat vs non-Cat” dataset as in “Logistic Regression as a Neural Network” (Assignment 2). The model you had built had 70% test accuracy on classifying cats vs non-cats images. Hopefully, your new model will perform a better!

Problem Statement: You are given a dataset (“data.h5”) containing:

- a training set of m_train images labelled as cat (1) or non-cat (0)
- a test set of m_test images labelled as cat and non-cat
- each image is of shape (num_px, num_px, 3) where 3 is for the 3 channels (RGB).


Let’s get more familiar with the dataset. Load the data by running the cell below.

The following code will show you an image in the dataset. Feel free to change the index and re-run the cell multiple times to see other images.

y = 0. It's a non-cat picture. Number of training examples: 209
Number of testing examples: 50
Each image is of size: (64, 64, 3)
train_x_orig shape: (209, 64, 64, 3)
train_y shape: (1, 209)
test_x_orig shape: (50, 64, 64, 3)
test_y shape: (1, 50)


As usual, you reshape and standardize the images before feeding them to the network. The code is given in the cell below. Figure 1: Image to vector conversion.
train_x's shape: (12288, 209)
test_x's shape: (12288, 50)


$12,288$ equals $64 \times 64 \times 3$ which is the size of one reshaped image vector.

#### 3 - Architecture of your model

Now that you are familiar with the dataset, it is time to build a deep neural network to distinguish cat images from non-cat images.

You will build two different models:

• A 2-layer neural network
• An L-layer deep neural network

You will then compare the performance of these models, and also try out different values for $L$.

Let’s look at the two architectures.

##### 3.1 - 2-layer neural network Figure 2: 2-layer neural network.
The model can be summarized as: INPUT -> LINEAR -> RELU -> LINEAR -> SIGMOID -> OUTPUT.

Detailed Architecture of figure 2:

• The input is a (64,64,3) image which is flattened to a vector of size $(12288,1)$.
• The corresponding vector: $[x_0,x_1,…,x_{12287}]^T$ is then multiplied by the weight matrix $W^{}$ of size $(n^{}, 12288)$.
• You then add a bias term and take its relu to get the following vector: $[a_0^{}, a_1^{},…, a_{n^{}-1}^{}]^T$.
• You then repeat the same process.
• You multiply the resulting vector by $W^{}$ and add your intercept (bias).
• Finally, you take the sigmoid of the result. If it is greater than 0.5, you classify it to be a cat.
##### 3.2 - L-layer deep neural network

It is hard to represent an L-layer deep neural network with the above representation. However, here is a simplified network representation: Figure 3: L-layer neural network.
The model can be summarized as: [LINEAR -> RELU] $\times$ (L-1) -> LINEAR -> SIGMOID

Detailed Architecture of figure 3:

• The input is a (64,64,3) image which is flattened to a vector of size (12288,1).
• The corresponding vector: $[x_0,x_1,…,x_{12287}]^T$ is then multiplied by the weight matrix $W^{}$ and then you add the intercept $b^{}$. The result is called the linear unit.
• Next, you take the relu of the linear unit. This process could be repeated several times for each $(W^{[l]}, b^{[l]})$ depending on the model architecture.
• Finally, you take the sigmoid of the final linear unit. If it is greater than 0.5, you classify it to be a cat.
##### 3.3 - General methodology

As usual you will follow the Deep Learning methodology to build the model:

1. Initialize parameters / Define hyperparameters
2. Loop for num_iterations:
a. Forward propagation
b. Compute cost function
c. Backward propagation
d. Update parameters (using parameters, and grads from backprop)
4. Use trained parameters to predict labels


Let’s now implement those two models!

#### 4 - Two-layer neural network

Good thing you built a vectorized implementation! Otherwise it might have taken 10 times longer to train this.

Now, you can use the trained parameters to classify images from the dataset. To see your predictions on the training and test sets, run the cell below.

Accuracy: 1.0


Expected Output:

 Accuracy 1
Accuracy: 0.72


Expected Output:

 Accuracy 0.72

Note: You may notice that running the model on fewer iterations (say 1500) gives better accuracy on the test set. This is called “early stopping” and we will talk about it in the next course. Early stopping is a way to prevent overfitting.

Congratulations! It seems that your 2-layer neural network has better performance (72%) than the logistic regression implementation (70%, assignment week 2). Let’s see if you can do even better with an $L$-layer model.

#### 5 - L-layer Neural Network

Question: Use the helper functions you have implemented previously to build an $L$-layer neural network with the following structure: [LINEAR -> RELU]$\times$(L-1) -> LINEAR -> SIGMOID. The functions you may need and their inputs are:

You will now train the model as a 4-layer neural network.

Run the cell below to train your model. The cost should decrease on every iteration. It may take up to 5 minutes to run 2500 iterations. Check if the “Cost after iteration 0” matches the expected output below, if not click on the square (⬛) on the upper bar of the notebook to stop the cell and try to find your error.

Congrats! It seems that your 4-layer neural network has better performance (80%) than your 2-layer neural network (72%) on the same test set.

This is good performance for this task. Nice job!

Though in the next course on “Improving deep neural networks” you will learn how to obtain even higher accuracy by systematically searching for better hyperparameters (learning_rate, layers_dims, num_iterations, and others you’ll also learn in the next course).

#### 6) Results Analysis

First, let’s take a look at some images the L-layer model labeled incorrectly. This will show a few mislabeled images. A few types of images the model tends to do poorly on include:

• Cat body in an unusual position
• Cat appears against a background of a similar color
• Unusual cat color and species
• Camera Angle
• Brightness of the picture
• Scale variation (cat is very large or small in image)

Congratulations on finishing this assignment. You can use your own image and see the output of your model. To do that:

1. Click on "File" in the upper bar of this notebook, then click "Open" to go on your Coursera Hub.
2. Add your image to this Jupyter Notebook's directory, in the "images" folder
3. Change your image's name in the following code
4. Run the code and check if the algorithm is right (1 = cat, 0 = non-cat)!

Accuracy: 1.0
y = 1.0, your L-layer model predicts a "cat" picture. References:
