## Are recurrent neural networks feed forward?

While feedforward networks have different weights across each node, recurrent neural networks share the same weight parameter within each layer of the network. Through this process, RNNs tend to run into two problems, known as exploding gradients and vanishing gradients.

### What is the main advantage of using recurrent neural networks instead of feed forward neural networks?

Advantages of Recurrent Neural Network An RNN remembers each and every information through time. It is useful in time series prediction only because of the feature to remember previous inputs as well. This is called Long Short Term Memory.

#### What is a neural network in Java?

A Neural Network is a type of computational system which represents the human brain in a smaller manner. The yellow dots are called “Neurons ”and the lines joining them are called “Synapses”, these concepts were taken from the 🧠.

**What is difference between feedforward and recurrent neural network?**

Feedforward neural networks pass the data forward from input to output, while recurrent networks have a feedback loop where data can be fed back into the input at some point before it is fed forward again for further processing and final output.

**Why is CNN better than feed forward?**

Convolutional neural network is better than a feed-forward network since CNN has features parameter sharing and dimensionality reduction. Because of parameter sharing in CNN, the number of parameters is reduced thus the computations also decreased.

## Is CNN faster than RNN?

RNNs usually are good at predicting what comes next in a sequence while CNNs can learn to classify a sentence or a paragraph. Based on computation time CNN seems to be much faster (~ 5x ) than RNN.

### What’s the difference between feed forward and recurrent neural networks?

There are no feedback (loops); i.e., the output of any layer does not affect that same layer. Feed-forward ANNs tend to be straightforward networks that associate inputs with outputs.

#### What’s the difference between feed forward and back propagation?

There is no pure backpropagation or pure feed-forward neural network. Backpropagation is algorithm to train (adjust weight) of neural network. Input for backpropagation is output_vector, target_output_vector, output is adjusted_weight_vector. Feed-forward is algorithm to calculate output vector from input vector.

**What’s the difference between feed forward and output vector?**

Feed-forward is algorithm to calculate output vector from input vector. Input for feed-forward is input_vector, output is output_vector. When you are training neural network, you need to use both algorithms.

**How does a recurrent neural network work for training?**

So, this how a Recurrent Neural Networks works. A recurrent neural network uses a backpropagation algorithm for training, but backpropagation happens for every timestamp, which is why it is commonly called as backpropagation through time.
