  • Abstract: We introduce the recurrent tensor network, a recurrent neural network model that replaces the matrix-vector multiplications of a standard recurrent neural network with bilinear tensor products. We compare its performance against networks that employ long short-term memory (LSTM) networks. Our results demonstrate that using tensors to capture the interactions between network inputs and history can lead to substantial improvement in predictive performance on the language modeling task.
