• What we'll do
Long Short Term Memory (LSTM) is a type of recurrent neural network that can recognize and model dependencies in sequential data. LSTM is state of the art for natural language modeling, it is the brain behind Siri, Alexa and Google Now. In this talk, we will learn the basics of LSTM, how to use LSTM with Keras and finally how to choose architectures given different natural language problems, e.g. sentiment analysis, machine translation and intelligent chat bots.
