class neupy.layers.GRU[source]

Gated Recurrent Unit (GRU) Layer.

n_units : int

Number of hidden units in the layer.

only_return_final : bool

If True, only return the final sequential output (e.g. for tasks where a single target value for the entire sequence is desired). In this case, Tensorfow makes an optimization which saves memory. Defaults to True.

input_weights : Initializer, ndarray

Weight parameters for input connection. Defaults to HeNormal().

hidden_weights : Initializer, ndarray

Weight parameters for hidden connection. Defaults to HeNormal().

biases : Initializer, ndarray

Bias parameters for all gates. Defaults to Constant(0).

resetgate : function

Activation function for the reset gate. Defaults to tf.nn.sigmoid.

updategate : function

Activation function for the update gate. Defaults to tf.nn.sigmoid.

hidden_update : function

Activation function for the hidden state update. Defaults to tf.tanh.

learn_init : bool

If True, make hidden_init trainable variable. Defaults to False.

hidden_init : array-like, Tensorfow variable, scalar or Initializer

Initializer for initial hidden state (\(h_0\)). Defaults to Constant(0).

backwards : bool

If True, process the sequence backwards and then reverse the output again such that the output from the layer is always from \(x_1\) to \(x_n\). Defaults to False.

unroll_scan : bool

If True the recursion is unrolled instead of using scan. For some graphs this gives a significant speed up but it might also consume more memory. When unroll_scan=True, backpropagation always includes the full sequence, so n_gradient_steps must be set to -1 and the input sequence length must be known at compile time (i.e., cannot be given as None). Defaults to False.

name : str or None

Layer’s name. Can be used as a reference to specific layer. Name Can be specified as:

  • String: Specified name will be used as a direct reference to the layer. For example, name=”fc”
  • Format string: Name pattern could be defined as a format string and specified field will be replaced with an index. For example, name=”fc{}” will be replaced with fc1, fc2 and so on. A bit more complex formatting methods are acceptable, for example, name=”fc-{:<03d}” will be converted to fc-001, fc-002, fc-003 and so on.
  • None: When value specified as None than name will be generated from the class name.

Defaults to None.


Code was adapted from the Lasagne library.
