Chapter 2. Intro to generative modeling with autoencoders

This chapter covers

  • Encoding data into a latent space (dimensionality reduction) and subsequent dimensionality expansion
  • Understanding the challenges of generative modeling in the context of a variational autoencoder
  • Generating handwritten digits by using Keras and autoencoders
  • Understanding the limitations of autoencoders and motivations for GANs

I dedicate this chapter to my grandmother, Aurelie Langrova, who passed away as we were finishing the work on it. She will be missed dearly.
