I want to implement a neural network on a big dataset. But training time is long (~1h30 per epoch). I'm still in the development process, so I don't want to wait such long time just to have poor results at the end.
I did it and it works great. However, I am looking for the next step of validating my architecture. I tried to overfit my network over 100 samples, but I can't reach a loss near 0 in reasonable time.
How can I ensure the results given by my NN will be good (or not), without having to train it on the whole dataset ?
