# Is this neural network architecture appropriate for CIFAR-10? [closed]

I have a CNN architecture for CIFAR-10 dataset which is as follows:

Convolutions: 64, 64, pool

Fully Connected Layers: 256, 256, 10

Batch size: 60

Loss: Categorical Cross-Entropy

When I train this model, training and testing accuracy along with loss has a very jittery behavior and does not converge properly.

Is the defined architecture correct? Should I have a max-pooling layer after every convolution layer?

• I know this is an old question, but could you please edit it to include the result of plot_model(your_model_object)? Moreover, you should provide the plots that show the behavior of the accuracy and loss. You should explain for how long you have been training.
