Hi all, just have a general question for GRU & LSTM - is the input for the two generally the prefix or the element? I remember we had one class in part 1 that deals with this (which takes the preceding characters to predict the next one), but I want to make sure this is the case in general too. I have been looking at the two architectures to use for one of my regression problems, and I wonder do I always have to break the input into preceding chunks.

Specifically, if I have a time series data, do I have to always use data[m-n:m] to predict data[m] (n being an arbitrary length)? Or are there more elegant approaches?
