# Understanding the basics of RNNs

A **recurrent neural network** (RNN) is recurrent in the way it processes the sequences of data. This means that the same operation ** a **is performed on all the data of the sequence input

**, returning output**

*x***of the specific unit for the specific point in the sequence**
