Variational Dropout is a regularization technique based on dropout, but uses a variational inference grounded approach. In Variational Dropout, we repeat the same dropout mask at each time step for both inputs, outputs, and recurrent layers (drop the same network units at each time step). This is in contrast to ordinary Dropout where different dropout masks are sampled at each time step for the inputs and outputs alone.
