Normalization Layers in Deep Learning Models

Zhe Ming Chng explains why data normalization matters in data science:

You’ve probably been told to standardize or normalize inputs to your model to improve performance. But what is normalization and how can we implement it easily in our deep learning models to improve performance? Normalizing our inputs aims to create a set of features that are on the same scale as each other, which we’ll explore more in this article.

Also, thinking about it, in neural networks, the output of each layer serves as the inputs into the next layer, so a natural question to ask is: If normalizing inputs to the model helps improve model performance, does standardizing the inputs into each layer help to improve model performance too?
