How does teacher forcing with output feedback works in the context of Echo State Networks and signal generation?

I understood the idea behind Echo State Networks. Given a signal, for each timestep the amplitude is fed into a recurrent network and the activation of each unit is measured. The activation vector is ...

What do echo state networks give us over a generic RNN resevoir?

Slightly generalizing the definition in Jaeger 2001, let's define a reservoir system to be any system of the form $$h_{t}=f(h_{t-1}, x_t)$$ $$y_t=g(Wh_t)$$ where $f$ and $g$ are fixed and $W$ is a ...

Why do we use a delay when feeding our input data to the echo state network?

I'm new to working with neural networks and have recently began implementing neural networks for time series forecasting in some of my work. I've been particularly using Echo State Networks and have ...
