Recently, recurrent neural networks (RNNs) have been revolutionizing natural language processing and other fields.  Among other things, RNNs can assign probabilities to sequences (such as English sentences) and transform one sequence into another (such as English into French).  I will describe some work our group has done at ISI over the past couple of years, addressing four questions:  What are neural sequence models learning?  How can they learn better?  Are there limits?  Can they be creative?
