[P] I’m stuck designing a neural net architecture for my project


A few weeks ago I had the idea to write an app that counts of players in finished game of go. Instead of using pure computer vision I wanted to use deep learning.

The idea was to translate a picture of a go game into a 19x19x3 px image representing the board position and then count the points. I created all the data for the training. This is how an image looks and its corresponding label. So I am training on like 7000 images/labels like this.

I tried out some architectures like multiple conv/pool layers without any FC layers. I am using mostly categorical cross entropy. Sizes of the kernel are 3×3. I played around with different number of filters. Often the training gets like to 60% accuracy and then stops to learn, so no accuracy progress is visible. I am thinking that the architecure is not suitable for my task. Seems like my data is fine although its weird that I always have to cast the data to tf.float32 before training, because tf doesnt let me to use tf.uint8.

Any tips how I could better my architecture for this specific task or maybe even a different approach?
