A Statistical View of Deep Learning (II): Auto-encoders and Free Energy 7

A Statistical View of Deep Learning (II): Auto-encoders and Free Energy
With the success of discriminative modelling using deep feedforward neural networks (or using an alternative statistical lens, recursive generalised linear models) in numerous industrial applications, there is an increased drive to produce similar outcomes with unsupervised learning. In this post, I'd like to explore the connections between denoising auto-encoders as a leading approach for unsupervised learning in deep learning, and density estimation ...
