In this research, we propose a novel algorithm for learning of the recurrent neural networks called as the fractional back-propagation through time (FBPTT). Considering the potential of the fractional calculus, we propose to use the fractional calculus-based gradient descent method to derive the FBPTT algorithm. The proposed FBPTT method is shown to outperform the conventional back-propagation through time algorithm on three major problems of estimation namely nonlinear system identification, pattern classification and Mackey–Glass chaotic time series prediction.
