I have to confess that I’m struggling to see the killer application for Recurrent Neural Networks. Can anyone suggest some additional reading I should do? So far the applications I’ve seen remind me of the Markov chain parody generators like Chomskybot. I was an early adopter of Swiftkey, so I get that, but honestly I’d rather speak than use a keyboard.
For the second part of the lesson, you took me inside the sausage factory (Keras) to see how the sausage is made. I’m not sure I want to know how the sausage is made! I was perfectly happy eating sausages. Before we go any further into the sausage factory, why are we here?
