/** LastTimeStepVertex is used in the context of recurrent neural network activations, to go from 3d (time series)
 * activations to 2d activations, by extracting out the last time step of activations for each example.<br>
 * This can be used for example in sequence to sequence architectures, and potentially for sequence classification.
 * <b>NOTE: Because RNNs may have masking arrays (to allow for examples/time series of different lengths in the same
 * minibatch), it is necessary to provide the same of the network input that has the corresponding mask array. If this
 * input does not have a mask array, the last time step of the input will be used for all examples; otherwise, the time
 * step of the last non-zero entry in the mask array (for each example separately) will be used.
