Balancing reconstruction error and Kullback-Leibler divergence in Variational Autoencoders

18 Feb 2020Andrea AspertiMatteo Trentin

In the loss function of Variational Autoencoders there is a well known tension between two components: the reconstruction loss, improving the quality of the resulting images, and the Kullback-Leibler divergence, acting as a regularizer of the latent space. Correctly balancing these two components is a delicate issue, easily resulting in poor generative behaviours... (read more)
