This thesis investigates challenges of sequence prediction in different scenarios such as sequence prediction using recurrent neural networks (RNNs) in the context of time series and information retrieval (IR) search sessions. Predicting the unknown values that follow some previously observed values is basically called sequence prediction. It is widely applicable to many domains where a sequential behavior is observed in the data. In this study, we focus on two different types of sequence prediction tasks: time series forecasting and next query prediction in an information retrieval search session.
