Variational Autoencoders

In this episode, we dive into Variational Autoencoders, a class of neural networks that can learn to compress data completely unsupervised! VAE’s are a very hot topic right now in unsupervised modelling of latent variables and provide a unique solution to the curse of dimensionality. This video starts with a quick intro into normal autoencoders and then goes into VAE’s and disentangled beta-VAE’s. I aslo touch upon related topics like learning causal, latent representations, image segmentation and the reparameterization trick! Get ready for a pretty technical episode!
