LSTM Python hyperparameters v MATLAB
8 views (last 30 days)
I am reading a LSTM research paper and it states:
The following experiments investigate deep RNN models parameterized by the following hyperparameters: 1. num_layers – the number of memory cell layers 2. rnn_size – the number of hidden units per memory cell (i.e. hidden state dimension) 3. wordvec – dimension of vector embeddings 4. seq_length – number of frames before truncating BPTT gradient
I can see 2 and 3 as the number of hidden units and the input size but I cannot find where one would set 1 and 4.

For 1, by default layers are not a "settable" parameter. You need to setup an experiment that tests networks of different sizes and see which one might give the best results. This example Try Multiple Pretrained Networks for Transfer Learning shows how you can use the Experiment Manager App in MATLAB to do this.
For 4, while I don't have an example to share on this. You could use Experiment Manager to setup an experiment that changes the sequence length of the input data used to feed the LSTM training.
