Illustrated Guide to LSTM’s and GRU’s

In this post, we’ll start with the intuition behind LSTM ’s and GRU’s. Then I’ll explain the internal mechanisms that allow LSTM’s and GRU’s to perform so well. If you want to understand what’s happening under the hood for these two networks, then this post is for you.

There's a ton of effort put into the illustrations in this post and it adds a lot. New to GRUs? Gated Recurrent Unit networks are an innovation on top of RNNs.
