As far as I know this is still active research. You have research showing recurrent networks being superior to feed-forward networks for time series forecasting?

Recurrent neural networks are superior for modelling cognitive processes. Since recurrence is proven to be an important part of the workings of our brain.

If you plan to do research comparing feed-forward networks and recurrent networks, I would strongly recommend to create an own implementation.

Recurrent NNs are quite mature already. They are several decades old. They are like a standard tool to model dynamical systems.

Feedforward NNs can't extrapolate time series data well. They can only interpolate/do curve-fitting. You need recurrent NNs to predict time series generated by dyanamical systems

For modelling cognitive processes yes.

Not to this moment but since Tensor Flow has an Java API now, maybe some intrepid Java developer could take a stab it and build a Tensor Flow extension.

537MavenShow me the proof? :P

2Contributor IThis conversation is already five years old, and there's still no RNN's in Rapid Miner ? I googled it and this was the first thing to come up ...

1,761UnicornRNN is not stock in RapidMiner at this very moment. That said we have the DeepLearning4j extension available from our partner, you can check it out here: https://www.rapidminerchina.com/en/products/shop/product/deeplearning4j/

39GuruAre there any plans to implement it native- incl. LSTMs?

Love you all.
