Week 2 : fast.ai - 1 v2 - CNNs, Differential Learning Rates, Data Augmentation, State of the art Image Classifiers
Jeremy emphasized that a learning rate that is too low is a better problem than a learning rate that is too high. If the learning rate is too high, you'll probably overshoot the global minima. From the Cyclical Learning Rate paper, for each mini-batch itera...
