Hands-On Introduction to LSTMs in Keras/TensorFlow

Abstract: This is a very hands on introduction to LSTMs in Keras and TensorFlow. We will build a language classifier, generator and a translating sequence to sequence model. We will talk about debugging models and explore various related architectures like GRUs, Bidirectional LSTMs, etc. to see how well they work.
