Deep learning (DL) has gained a lot of popularity in the science and business community. It has been successful in a range of applications, especially in computer vision. This paper presents results from applying scaled MNIST images dataset to a popular implementation of deep learning called ResNet. This is a valuable contribution because in general convolutional networks are not scale invariant. Our objective is to explore the behavior of a residual neural network when trained and evaluated using three different datasets of scaled MNIST images.
