This paper presents a set of techniques that allow generating a class of testbeds that can be used to test recurrent neural networks’ capabilities of integrating information in time. More in particular, the testbeds allow evaluating the capability of such models, and possibly other architectures and algorithms, of (a) categorizing different time series, (b) anticipating future signal levels on the basis of past ones, and (c) functioning robustly with respect to noise and other systematic random variations of the temporal and spatial properties of the input time series. The paper also presents a number of analysis tools that can be used to understand the functioning and organization of the dynamical internal representations that recurrent neural networks develop to acquire the aforementioned capabilities, for example to understand how they capture time regularities such as periodicity, repetitions, spikes, numbers, levels and rates of change of input signals. The utility of the proposed testbeds is illustrated by testing and studying the capacity of Elman neural networks to predict and categorize different signals in two simple tasks.
