When you finish this, you will have finished the last programming assignment of Week 4, and also the last programming assignment of this course!

You will use use the functions you'd implemented in the previous assignment to build a deep network, and apply it to cat vs non-cat classification. Hopefully, you will see an improvement in accuracy relative to your previous logistic regression implementation.

**After this assignment you will be able to:**

- Build and apply a deep neural network to supervised learning.

Let's get started!

Let's first import all the packages that you will need during this assignment.

- numpy is the fundamental package for scientific computing with Python.
- matplotlib is a library to plot graphs in Python.
- h5py is a common package to interact with a dataset that is stored on an H5 file.
- PIL and scipy are used here to test your model with your own picture at the end.
- dnn_app_utils provides the functions implemented in the "Building your Deep Neural Network: Step by Step" assignment to this notebook.
- np.random.seed(1) is used to keep all the random function calls consistent. It will help us grade your work.

```
In [1]:
```import time
import numpy as np
import h5py
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import scipy
from PIL import Image
from scipy import ndimage
from dnn_app_utils_v2 import *
%matplotlib inline
plt.rcParams['figure.figsize'] = (5.0, 4.0) # set default size of plots
plt.rcParams['image.interpolation'] = 'nearest'
plt.rcParams['image.cmap'] = 'gray'
%load_ext autoreload
%autoreload 2
np.random.seed(1)

```
```

You will use the same "Cat vs non-Cat" dataset as in "Logistic Regression as a Neural Network" (Assignment 2). The model you had built had 70% test accuracy on classifying cats vs non-cats images. Hopefully, your new model will perform a better!

**Problem Statement**: You are given a dataset ("data.h5") containing:

```
- a training set of m_train images labelled as cat (1) or non-cat (0)
- a test set of m_test images labelled as cat and non-cat
- each image is of shape (num_px, num_px, 3) where 3 is for the 3 channels (RGB).
```

Let's get more familiar with the dataset. Load the data by running the cell below.

```
In [2]:
```train_x_orig, train_y, test_x_orig, test_y, classes = load_data()

```
In [5]:
```# Example of a picture
index = 73
plt.imshow(train_x_orig[index])
print ("y = " + str(train_y[0,index]) + ". It's a " + classes[train_y[0,index]].decode("utf-8") + " picture.")

```
```

```
In [6]:
```# Explore your dataset
m_train = train_x_orig.shape[0]
num_px = train_x_orig.shape[1]
m_test = test_x_orig.shape[0]
print ("Number of training examples: " + str(m_train))
print ("Number of testing examples: " + str(m_test))
print ("Each image is of size: (" + str(num_px) + ", " + str(num_px) + ", 3)")
print ("train_x_orig shape: " + str(train_x_orig.shape))
print ("train_y shape: " + str(train_y.shape))
print ("test_x_orig shape: " + str(test_x_orig.shape))
print ("test_y shape: " + str(test_y.shape))

```
```

As usual, you reshape and standardize the images before feeding them to the network. The code is given in the cell below.

```
In [7]:
```# Reshape the training and test examples
train_x_flatten = train_x_orig.reshape(train_x_orig.shape[0], -1).T # The "-1" makes reshape flatten the remaining dimensions
test_x_flatten = test_x_orig.reshape(test_x_orig.shape[0], -1).T
# Standardize data to have feature values between 0 and 1.
train_x = train_x_flatten/255.
test_x = test_x_flatten/255.
print ("train_x's shape: " + str(train_x.shape))
print ("test_x's shape: " + str(test_x.shape))

```
```

$12,288$ equals $64 \times 64 \times 3$ which is the size of one reshaped image vector.

Now that you are familiar with the dataset, it is time to build a deep neural network to distinguish cat images from non-cat images.

You will build two different models:

- A 2-layer neural network
- An L-layer deep neural network

You will then compare the performance of these models, and also try out different values for $L$.

Let's look at the two architectures.

The model can be summarized as: ***INPUT -> LINEAR -> RELU -> LINEAR -> SIGMOID -> OUTPUT***.

__Detailed Architecture of figure 2__:

- The input is a (64,64,3) image which is flattened to a vector of size $(12288,1)$.
- The corresponding vector: $[x_0,x_1,...,x_{12287}]^T$ is then multiplied by the weight matrix $W^{[1]}$ of size $(n^{[1]}, 12288)$.
- You then add a bias term and take its relu to get the following vector: $[a_0^{[1]}, a_1^{[1]},..., a_{n^{[1]}-1}^{[1]}]^T$.
- You then repeat the same process.
- You multiply the resulting vector by $W^{[2]}$ and add your intercept (bias).
- Finally, you take the sigmoid of the result. If it is greater than 0.5, you classify it to be a cat.

It is hard to represent an L-layer deep neural network with the above representation. However, here is a simplified network representation:

The model can be summarized as: ***[LINEAR -> RELU] $\times$ (L-1) -> LINEAR -> SIGMOID***

__Detailed Architecture of figure 3__:

- The input is a (64,64,3) image which is flattened to a vector of size (12288,1).
- The corresponding vector: $[x_0,x_1,...,x_{12287}]^T$ is then multiplied by the weight matrix $W^{[1]}$ and then you add the intercept $b^{[1]}$. The result is called the linear unit.
- Next, you take the relu of the linear unit. This process could be repeated several times for each $(W^{[l]}, b^{[l]})$ depending on the model architecture.
- Finally, you take the sigmoid of the final linear unit. If it is greater than 0.5, you classify it to be a cat.

As usual you will follow the Deep Learning methodology to build the model:

```
1. Initialize parameters / Define hyperparameters
2. Loop for num_iterations:
a. Forward propagation
b. Compute cost function
c. Backward propagation
d. Update parameters (using parameters, and grads from backprop)
4. Use trained parameters to predict labels
```

Let's now implement those two models!

**Question**: Use the helper functions you have implemented in the previous assignment to build a 2-layer neural network with the following structure: *LINEAR -> RELU -> LINEAR -> SIGMOID*. The functions you may need and their inputs are:

```
def initialize_parameters(n_x, n_h, n_y):

Good thing you built a vectorized implementation! Otherwise it might have taken 10 times longer to train this.

Now, you can use the trained parameters to classify images from the dataset. To see your predictions on the training and test sets, run the cell below.

```
In [13]:
```predictions_train = predict(train_x, train_y, parameters)

```
```

**Expected Output**:

**Accuracy** | 1.0 |

```
In [14]:
```predictions_test = predict(test_x, test_y, parameters)

```
```

**Expected Output**:

**Accuracy** | 0.72 |

**Note**: You may notice that running the model on fewer iterations (say 1500) gives better accuracy on the test set. This is called "early stopping" and we will talk about it in the next course. Early stopping is a way to prevent overfitting.

Congratulations! It seems that your 2-layer neural network has better performance (72%) than the logistic regression implementation (70%, assignment week 2). Let's see if you can do even better with an $L$-layer model.

**Question**: Use the helper functions you have implemented previously to build an $L$-layer neural network with the following structure: *[LINEAR -> RELU]$\times$(L-1) -> LINEAR -> SIGMOID*. The functions you may need and their inputs are:

You will now train the model as a 5-layer neural network.

Run the cell below to train your model. The cost should decrease on every iteration. It may take up to 5 minutes to run 2500 iterations. Check if the "Cost after iteration 0" matches the expected output below, if not click on the square (⬛) on the upper bar of the notebook to stop the cell and try to find your error.

```
In [17]:
```parameters = L_layer_model(train_x, train_y, layers_dims, num_iterations = 2500, print_cost = True)

```
```

**Expected Output**:

**Cost after iteration 0** | 0.771749 |

Congrats! It seems that your 5-layer neural network has better performance (80%) than your 2-layer neural network (72%) on the same test set.

This is good performance for this task. Nice job!

Though in the next course on "Improving deep neural networks" you will learn how to obtain even higher accuracy by systematically searching for better hyperparameters (learning_rate, layers_dims, num_iterations, and others you'll also learn in the next course).

```
In [20]:
```print_mislabeled_images(classes, test_x, test_y, pred_test)

```
```

**A few type of images the model tends to do poorly on include:**

- Cat body in an unusual position
- Cat appears against a background of a similar color
- Unusual cat color and species
- Camera Angle
- Brightness of the picture
- Scale variation (cat is very large or small in image)

Congratulations on finishing this assignment. You can use your own image and see the output of your model. To do that:

```
1. Click on "File" in the upper bar of this notebook, then click "Open" to go on your Coursera Hub.
2. Add your image to this Jupyter Notebook's directory, in the "images" folder
3. Change your image's name in the following code
4. Run the code and check if the algorithm is right (1 = cat, 0 = non-cat)!
```

```
In [ ]:
```## START CODE HERE ##
my_image = "my_image.jpg" # change this to the name of your image file
my_label_y = [1] # the true class of your image (1 -> cat, 0 -> non-cat)
## END CODE HERE ##
fname = "images/" + my_image
image = np.array(ndimage.imread(fname, flatten=False))
my_image = scipy.misc.imresize(image, size=(num_px,num_px)).reshape((num_px*num_px*3,1))
my_predicted_image = predict(my_image, my_label_y, parameters)
plt.imshow(image)
print ("y = " + str(np.squeeze(my_predicted_image)) + ", your L-layer model predicts a \"" + classes[int(np.squeeze(my_predicted_image)),].decode("utf-8") + "\" picture.")
