In this lecture we will discuss two modern generative models, the variational auto-encoders (VAEs) and the generative adversarial networks (GANs).
Please study the following material in preparation for the class:
- Part of Chapter 20 (sec. 20.9 to 20.10) of the Deep Learning Textbook (deep generative models).
- Slides on deep generative modeling (26 to 41)
