We propose zoneout, a novel method for regularizing RNNs. At each timestep, zoneout stochastically forces some hidden units to maintain their previous values. Like dropout, zoneout uses random noise to train a pseudo-ensemble, improving generalization. But by preserving instead of dropping hidden units, gradient information and state information are more(More)
We propose a novel method of regularization for recurrent neural networks called suprisal-driven zoneout. In this method, states zoneout (maintain their previous value rather than updating), when the suprisal (discrepancy between the last state's prediction and target) is small. Thus regulariza-tion is adaptive and input-driven on a per-neuron basis. We(More)
