Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs): Deep Learning for Sequences and Time Series

by Pinal Dave

Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs) excel at processing sequences, making them ideal for analyzing, and predicting time series data with temporal dependencies.

What you'll learn

Understanding and predicting sequential data, such as financial time series, speech, or text, requires a specialized approach to capture the time-dependent nature of the information. Traditional neural networks fall short as they don't retain past information for future predictions. In this course, Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs): Deep Learning for Sequences and Time Series, you’ll gain the ability to build and deploy RNN models that can predict and analyze time-based data with high accuracy. First, you’ll explore the fundamental concepts of RNNs, including how they process and remember information over time, which is crucial for understanding sequential data. Next, you’ll discover how to design and implement advanced RNN architectures such as Long Short-term Memory (LSTM) networks, which overcome the limitations of traditional RNNs by better handling long-range dependencies. Finally, you’ll learn how to fine-tune and evaluate your RNN models, ensuring they are robust, accurate, and ready to tackle real-world sequence prediction problems. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of RNNs needed to develop deep learning models that can forecast, generate, and interpret sequential data across various applications
