13 – Variational Autoencoders (21/03/2018)

In this lecture, Chin-Wei will talk about a form of autoencoder known as the Variational Autoencoder (VAE). We’ll see how a deep latent gaussian model can be seen as an autoencoder via Amortized variational inference, and how such an autoencoder can be used as a generative model. At the end, we’ll take a look at variants of VAE and different ways to improve inference.
