Neural networks with sparse inputs

I have a task I want to solve with neural networks. The task is predicting a certain vector of dimension K. The problem is that the inputs to the networks are sparse. The input is a vector of size N, ...

Is there any way to force one input have more effect on model?

Now I am working on building a deep learning model for a regression problem. I used 50 inputs and try to add one new categorical input. The problem is that this one input is much more important than ...

Is it a good practice to split sparse from dense features?

I have a mixture of real (float) and categorical features to use as input in a neural network. I encode the categorical features using one-hot / multi-hot encoding. If I want to use all the features ...

Correctly input additional values into CNN

I understand that in order to add additional inputs to a CNN, e.g. in self driving, I can append the data to a flattened layer after the convolutions and before the fully connected layers. However, a ...

Using a Neural Network (LSTM) to approve/reject word-type sequences

I would like to train an LSTM neural network to either "approve" or "reject" a string based on the word-type sequence. For instance: "Mike's Airplane" would output "...
