Hello fellow Data Scientists

I'm trying to use a LSTM (using word embeddings) to generate a system that can tag each word of a sentence. For this, I give it a set of sentences of different sizes and using padding I make the sentences all the same size, so that the LSTM can process them.

The problem is, the LSTM results, after excluding the tags that correspond to the padding portion give outputs of different size than the input.

So my question is, is this an architecture problem or it might be the case that more training (epocs word bigger batches) is needed?

Thanks for the help!

Edit: More details:

In the following picture I show my LSTM Architecture

enter image description here

Upon running for a sentence of size n (using one hot encoding and word embeddings) I get a result, that is usually of diferente size; by result I mean final output of the lstm and corresponding translation into words.

Also, there are the variables I have at the moment, with which I've played around:

BATCH_SIZE = 164
EPOCHS = 50
LSTM_NODES = 128
NUM_SENTENCES = 3000
MAX_NUM_WORDS = 250000
EMBEDDING_SIZE = 300

Sample input:

1  Cada
2  obra
3  consome
4  1,5
5  tonelada
6  de
7  aço
8  (
9  US$
10 6
11 mil
12 )
13 mais
14 US$
15 10
16 mil
17 de
18 mão-de-obra
19 .

Sample output:

1  c-am-prd*
2  c-am-prd*
3  (c-v*)
4  (am-rec*)
5  (c-v*)
6  (c-v*)
7  (c-v*)
8  (c-v*)
9  am-dis*

How do you get the "LSTM results"? Are the "LSTM results" extracted making a prediction for each word in the original sentence?

The LSTM is not a problem to do what you want to do. It might be an issue of your implementation. If you put a snippet of code maybe you could get some help.
