Why do smaller weights converge faster for RNNs?

I am writing a Recurrent Neural Network using only the NumPy library for a binary classification problem. When I initialize the weights with np.random.randn, after 1000 epochs it gets ~60% accuracy, ...

What is the most accurate way of building a Perceptron using only NumPy?

For context, I am trying to write a bunch of neural network programs using no other packages besides NumPy for educational purposes. I am trying to make them as simple as possible, i.e. removing the ...

Is there a vectorized Implementation of Convolution (Full Mode) with a very big kernel/gradient?

I'm currently trying to figure a way to implement the backpropagation of a convolutional layer with plain numpy. In theory, I can calculate the partial derivative of the loss w.r.t. the convolution ...

Why is my derivation of the back-propagation equations inconsistent with Andrew Ng's slides from Coursera?

I am using the cross-entropy cost function to calculate its derivatives using different variables $Z, W$ and $b$ at different instances. Please refer image below for calculation. As per my knowledge, ...

How can I perform lossless compression of images so that they can be stored to train a CNN?

I have a set of images, which are quite large in size (1000x1000), and as such do not easily fit into memory. I'd like to compress these images, such that little information is missing. I am looking ...
