likelihood.seqtoone_normal {BayesFluxR}R Documentation

Use a Normal likelihood for a seq-to-one recurrent network


This creates a likelihood of the form

y_i \sim Normal(net(x_i), \sigma), i=1,...,N

Here x_i is a subsequence which will be fed through the recurrent network to obtain the final output net(x_i) = \hat{y}_i. Thus, if one has a single time series, and splits the single time series into subsequences of length K which are then used to predict the next output of the time series, then each x_i consists of K consecutive observations of the time series. In a sense one constraints the maximum memory length of the network this way.
