Classifying images of everyday objects using a neural network

The ability to try many different neural network architectures to address a problem is what makes deep learning really powerful, especially compared to shallow learning techniques like linear regression, logistic regression etc.

In this assignment, you will:

  1. Explore the CIFAR10 dataset: https://www.cs.toronto.edu/~kriz/cifar.html
  2. Set up a training pipeline to train a neural network on a GPU
  3. Experiment with different network architectures & hyperparameters

As you go through this notebook, you will find a ??? in certain places. Your job is to replace the ??? with appropriate code or values, to ensure that the notebook runs properly end-to-end. Try to experiment with different network structures and hypeparameters to get the lowest loss.
