What is LSTM.transpose()?

STM.transpose() is an experiment with an unfolded version of LSTMs. The hypothesis is that The gradients of a deep Neural Network following the same architecture of the LSTM unfolded through time (even those of the bottom layers) are efficiently trainable with Backpropagation, and won’t be affected by the ‘vanishing gradient’ problem. This is the case even when the weights are not ‘tied’

Code and references

The code is public and would like to have more people collaborate with us to make it better.

We believe that creativity comes with freedom and to solve challenging problems in AI we need to have freedom and creative thinking. We provide an unconstrained environment to highly motivated students to do whatever that comes to their minds and explore deep learning.
