How does LSTM in deep reinforcement learning differ from experience replay?

In the paper Deep Recurrent Q-Learning for Partially Observable MDPs, the author processed the Atari game frames with an LSTM layer at the end. My questions are: How does this method differ from the ...

What can be considered a deep recurrent neural network?

In the paper Deep Recurrent Q-Learning for Partially Observable MDPs, the DRQN is described as DQN with the first post-convolutional fully-connected layer replaced by a recurrent LSTM. I have DQN ...

Does this diagram represent several LSTMs, or one through several timesteps?

I'm trying to read this paper describing Google's LSTM architecture for machine translation. It features this diagram on page 4: I'm interested in the encoder block, on the left. Apparently, the pink ...

Number of nodes in hidden layer for LSTM

I am starting to learn LSTM by understanding how it is used for creating a char-RNN and had a fundamental question. Does the number of nodes in the hidden layer need to be the same as that of the ...

What is it about sigmoid activations in particular that allows for the keeping and forgetting of past information from different time scales?

My understanding is that normal recurrent neural networks (RNNs) are not good at keeping past information from different time scales. Furthermore, my understanding is that Gated RNNs, such as Long ...

How Long Short Term Memory (LSTM) work for time series classification?

I first got the concept of LSTM on how it works word to word prediction etc. However, I want to know how it work with the time-series classification. For example I have the follwing data (see image ...
