Last night's meetup went great, I think everyone enjoyed the talk. I brought up how I'm currently using recurrent neural networks for stock market prediction and practically got heckled out of the room. The speaker also seemed to think recurrent neural networks were rubbish and just don't work. Based on my own experience, I strongly disagree!
So I'd like to prove everyone wrong by demonstrating how I'm using recurrent neural networks for stock market prediction specifically, and I'd also like to more generally discuss current research into effectively training recurrent neural networks, why people have had trouble with them in the past, why LSTMs suck, and why standard RNNs are so interesting and powerful now.
So come for a cool demo, free beer, and a discussion about some very exciting research!
