Data Science Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for Data science professionals, Machine Learning specialists, and those interested in learning more about the field. It only takes a minute to sign up. Not sure if you figured this out, but I've been looking into it recently, and this is what I've found:.
I think with a larger network, it would speed things up. Have you tried googling:? There are plenty of links that pop up if you paste this question, such as:. The smallest unit of computation in Tensorflow is called op-kernel.
And this op-kernel could be processed from various devices like cpu, gpu, accelerator etc. If you use the function like "keras. Each of these op-kernels are implemented with independent library and no optimization is applied between these op-kernels. Each of the op-kernels are sorted by the execution order and processed individually in the GPU. No consideration of optimized processing of multiple op-kernels occurs. Sign up to join this community.

Michaela Michaela 11 1 1 bronze badge.Normal Neural Networks are feedforward neural networks wherein the input data travels only in one direction i. Recurrent Neural Networkson the other hand, are a bit complicated. The data travels in cycles through different layers.
To put it a bit more technically, the data moves inside a Recurrent Neural Network along with directed cycles of paths between the nodes. An ability that is vital when dealing with sequential data, the ability to learn dynamically and store what has been learned to predict.
This feature becomes extremely useful when dealing with sequential data. In all natural languages, the order of the words is important to convey the meaning in the right context.
When it comes to predicting the next word of a sentence, the network must be familiar with what had come before the word it must predict. RNN can deal with any sequential data, including time series, video or audio sequences etc.

RNNs have a separate state or layer to store the output for a given input which is again used as input and hence the name recurrent. So we know that RNNs are capable of remembering the characteristics of previous inputs and outputs. But for how long can it remember. This is called long-term dependency. Unfortunately as that gap between the words grows, RNNs become unable to learn to connect the information. LSTM networks have a repeating module that has 4 different neural network layers interacting to deal with the long term dependency problem.
Adding the input LSTM network layer classifier. We set it to true since the next layer is also a Recurrent Network Layer. Adding a second LSTM network layer classifier. Adding a dense hidden layer classifier. Adding the output layer classifier.

You can use the model however you want, but you carry the risk for your actions. Of course, the answer is fairly nuanced. Our dataset comes from Yahoo! Finance and covers all available at the time of this writing data on Bitcoin-USD price.
Note that we sort the data by Date just in case. Of course, Bitcoin made some people really rich and for some went really poor. The question remains though, will it happen again?
Shall we? Our dataset is somewhat different from our previous examples. The data is sorted by time and recorded at equal intervals 1 day. Such a sequence of data is called Time Series. Temporal datasets are quite common in practice.
You might be interested in a plethora of properties regarding your Time Series - stationarityseasonality and autocorrelation are some of the most well known. Autocorrelation is the correlation of data points separated by some interval known as lag. A time series is said to be stationarity if it has constant mean and variance.
Also, the covariance is independent of the time. Time Series forecasting. There are many approaches that you can use for this purpose. RNNs allow using the output from the model as a new input for the same model. The process can be repeated indefinitely. One serious limitation of RNNs is the inability of capturing long-term dependencies in a sequence e.
The default LSTM behavior is remembering information for prolonged periods of time. Recall that this will help our optimization algorithm converge faster:.
The scaler expects the data to be shaped as x, yso we add a dummy dimension using reshape before applying it.
We use isnan as a mask to filter out NaN values. Again we reshape the data after removing the NaNs. LSTMs expect the data to be in 3 dimensions. We need to split the data into sequences of some preset length.
The shape we want to obtain is:. The process of building sequences works by creating a sequence of a specified length at position 0.
Then we shift one position to the right e. The process is repeated until all possible positions are used. Our model will use sequences representing 99 days of Bitcoin price changes each for training.In this benchmark, we try to compare the runtime performance during training for each of the kernels. We try to measure in a way that it should be generic and not be specific for our Returnn framework.
You can run this benchmark yourself with this script. Note that these kernels are always use for a single direction in time and a single layer. CudnnLSTM currently does not support batches with sequences of different length, thus this is normally not an option to use.
In TensorFlow, this is issue Note that you still can use the cuDNN kernel in the way we do in Returnn, i. For the benchmark, we build a multi-layer bidirectional network. Example of a 3 layer bidirectional LSTM:.
We use framewise cross entropy as a loss for training, and we use a very simple artificial dataset GeneratingDataset. Task12AXDataset with dense input with a very low number of dimensions 9 and single output class indices sparse with a very low number of class labels 2so that the overhead of the final softmax layer should be minimal, as well as the whole input pipeline. We are not interested in the error performance on this task in this benchmark, as in theory the results should all be the same.
In practice, they are not due to different implementations, and also the initialization is currently not the same in all cases. However, that has no effect on the runtime performance. By default, we use chunking, i. See our paper for more details about chunking. Thus, our mini-batch has in total frames. Each of those are executed on different hardware, so there might be small other differences due to that.
Also the number of available CPU threads differs. Each of those were run on Ubuntu The implementation of it is quite straight-forward. On CPU, it again looks different, and not as clear. This depends also on how much CPU threads will be used, and on the hardware. For example, NativeLSTM is currently not well optimized to use multiple threads intra op parallelism.

TensorFlow's performance guide includes a section on RNN performancewhich states:. The benchmark results we got running the "large" model are as follows:. We did not test the handling of variable-length sequences per batch for CudnnLSTMbut there seem to be some issues e. Bucketing could be a useful but not perfect workaround for this problem.
PyTorch 's built-in nn. For one thing, PyTorch's nn. LSTM is not a contrib module with little documentation. While we leave a rigorous comparison between PyTorch's nn. When we tried running PyTorch's own LSTM language modeling exampleusing nearly the same set of parameters 2 layers, 1. Keras also has a similar-looking module that was introduced last year.
We did not test it, but it appears to have a nice documentation. Skip to content.

Provide a link to a GitHub Gist of a Python script that can reproduce your issue or just copy the script here if it is short. I agree that it would be good to improve documentation of Keras and mention activations even if they're not configurable and possibly provide links to related CuDNN or TensorFlow documentation. I believe cuDNN backend provised some other stuff that maybe useful.
I wanted to do batch normalization before activations but not possible with GPU. Any issue that this will resolve in the future?
Sorry to bring up this issue again but I am a bit confused. In the first paragraph you say that sigmoid and tanh activations are performed in CuDNN LSTM cells, but in the last paragraph you say that the activations are not performed between layers. How can it be? I looked at the link you provided but I didn't find that they have removed activation.

If True, add 1 to the bias of the forget gate at initialization. This is recommended in Jozefowicz et al. Whether to return the last output. Whether to return the last state in addition to the output. If True, process the input sequence backwards and return the reversed sequence.
If True, the last state for each sample at index i in a batch will be used as initial state for the sample of index i in the following batch. View source. Args: states: Numpy arrays that contains the value for the initial state, which will be feed to cell at the first time step. When the value is None, zero filled numpy array will be created based on the cell state size.
