Variational Autoencoder Explained

Variational encoders (VAEs) are generative models, in contrast to typical standard neural networks used for regression or classification tasks. VAEs have diverse applications from generating fake human faces and handwritten digits to producing purely "artificial" music. This post will explore what a VAE is, the intuition behind it and also the tough looking (but quite … Continue reading Variational Autoencoder Explained

What are Generative Learning Algorithms?

I will try to make this post as light on mathematics as is possible, but a complete in depth understanding can only come from understanding the underlying mathematics! Generative learning algorithms are really beautiful! Like anything they have there advantages and disadvantages. These algorithms are a bit "tough" to understand but comparing them by the … Continue reading What are Generative Learning Algorithms?
