Abstract: Nowadays the most exciting technology breakthrough has been the rise of the deep learning. In computer vision Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN or ConvNet) are the default deep learning model used for image classification problems. In these deep network models, feature extraction is figure out by itself and these models tend to perform well with huge amount of samples. Herein we explore the impact of various Hyper-Parameter Optimization (HPO) methods and regularization techniques with deep neural networks on Fashion-MNIST (F-MNIST) dataset which is proposed by Zalando Research. We have proposed deep ConvNet architectures with Data Augmentation and explore the impact of this by configuring the hyperparameters and regularization methods. As deep learning requires a lots of data, the insufficiency of image samples can be expand through various data augmentation methods like Cropping, Rotation, Flipping, and Shifting. The experimental results show impressive results on this new benchmarking dataset F-MNIST.
