I'm working on an age estimation project trying to classify a given face in a predefined age range. For that purpose I'm training a deep NN using the keras library. The accuracy for the training and the validation sets is shown in the graph below:
As you can see the validation accuracy keeps rising with smaller steps than the training accuracy. Should i stop training at the epoch 280 in which the training and the validation accuracy have the same value or should i proceed the training process as long as the validation accuracy is rising, even thought the training accuracy value is also getting at overfitted values (eg. 93%).
