This week we will continue with a similar challenge to last week: MNIST. This challenge is considered the “Hello, World!” of neural networks. You will tackle this challenge using several machine learning techniques and neural network architectures.
MNIST is a large dataset containing images of handwritten digits. The challenge is to create an algorithm that can recognise these digits with a high accuracy. In today’s AI Code we challenge you to solve this in the following 4 ways:
- Do not use machine learning.
- Use a machine learning algorithm but not a neural network.
- Use a fully-connected neural network.
- Use a convolutional neural network.
