In this project, you will implement a CNN for CIFAR-10 dataset. The image dataset contains 60k 32×32
color images of objects of 10 classes as shown below.

Further information on the dataset can be found in
See the attached instructions on the architecture of the CNN. You are required to implement the CNN
completely using Tensorflow’s native functions to specify the CNN structure and to perform its training.
You will be given 50,000 images (5000 images for each class) for training and 5000 images (500 image
for each class) for testing. Like previous assignment, we will withhold 5000 images to evaluate your
program. Perform the following tasks
1. Give the dimension for each layer, and the number of weight parameters for each convolutional
layer and the output layer
2. Implement in Tensorflow the back-propagation method to train the CNN. Initialize weights for
all filters for the convolutional layers to small values and iteratively update them with
appropriate learning rate until convergence. Plot the training and testing errors for each epoch.
Save weights for all layers, as detailed in the attached instructions.
3. Visualize the learnt filters for the first convolution layer (see attached instructions).
4. Given the trained CNN, evaluate its performance on the testing dataset by computing its
classification error for each class as well as the average classification errors for all 10 classes.
Submit your Tensorflow code via LMS, along with the required plots, final classification accuracy for the
testing data, filter images for layer 1, and the saved weights.
Further information on the dataset, the architecture of the CNN, and on Tensorflow implementation
details can be found in the attached instructions.
