Autoencoders have a number of limitations for generative tasks.
That’s why they need a power-up to become Variational
Autoencoders. In my new video, I explain the first step to
transform an autoencoder into a VAE. Specifically, I discuss how
VAEs use multivariate normal distributions to encode input data
into a latent space and why this is awesome for generative tasks.
Don’t worry – I also explain what multivariate normal
This video is part of a series called “Generating Sound with
Neural Networks”. In this series, you’ll learn how to generate
sound from audio files and spectrograms 🎧 🎧 using Variational
Autoencoders 🤖 🤖
