Default value β€œadam”.
Β learning_rate :Β float, define the learning rate to use.

Default value β€œFalse”.
Β update?Β :Β boolean, whether the layer’s variables should be updated during backward. Equivalent to freeze the layer.
Default value β€œTrue”.
Β lda_coeff :Β float, defines the coefficient by which the loss derivative will be multiplied before being sent to the previous layer (since during the backward run we go backwards).
Default value β€œ1”.

SimpleRNN layer inside TimeDistributed layer

1 – Generate a set of data

We generate an array of data of type single and shape [batch_size = 10, time = 6, timesteps = 7, features = 5].

2 – Define graph

First, we define the first layer of the graph which is an Input layer (explicit input layer method). This layer is setup as an input array shaped [time = 6, timesteps = 7, features = 5].
Then, we add to the graph the TimeDistributed layer which we setup with a SimpleRNN layer using the define method.

3 – Run graph

We call the forward method and retrieve the result with the β€œPrediction 3D” method.
This method returns two variables, the first one is the layer information (cluster composed of the layer name, the graph index and the shape of the output layer) and the second one is the prediction with a shape of [batch_size, time, units].
The output dimension depends on the parameters β€œreturn-sequences”, refer to the chapter β€œDimension” of β€œadd to graph” documentation.
