Understanding LSTM

LSTM stands for long short-term memory and is a type of neural network mostly used for sequential data (such as time series and text data) in which the order of the inputs matter. Before we dive into LSTM, let's take a quick look at neural networks to understand how they work.

A neural network is a computer system modeled on the human brain and nervous system. It can have multiple layers, often divided into three categories—input, hidden, and output. Each of these layers is composed of several nodes that work as functions, receiving input and sending output between each other.
