Stacked Denoising Autoencoders

While autoencoders are valuable tools in themselves, significant accuracy can be obtained by stacking autoencoders to form a deep network. This is achieved by feeding the representation created by the encoder on one layer into the next layer's encoder as the input to that layer.

Stacked denoising autoencoders (SdAs) are currently in use in many leading data science teams for sophisticated natural language analyses as well as a hugely broad range of signals, image, and text analysis.

The implementation of a SdA will be very familiar after the previous chapter's discussion of deep belief networks. The SdA is used in much the same way as the RBMs in our deep belief networks were used. Each layer of the deep architecture ...
