HW 8.1 training time

How long did your training take?

I am training with RNN and GRU, and it takes 26 seconds for a single epoch in RNN, and 31 seconds for a single epoch in GRU training. Overall, with 160 epochs, it took approximately one and a half hours for each model.

I wonder If everyone is spending this much time as well. Also, I wonder how accurate you guys’ models are. Mine seems to be repeating same words or phrases. Thank you.

The time looks reasonable. Try training larger epochs and larger learning rate.

Don’t be too struggle on the repeating outputs, we will focus more on how do you approach and try to solve the problem when grading.
