On Implicit Regularization in $β$-VAEs

31 Jan 2020 Abhishek Kumar Ben Poole

While the impact of variational inference (VI) on posterior inference in a fixed generative model is well-characterized, its role in regularizing a learned generative model when used in variational autoencoders (VAEs) is poorly understood. We study the regularizing effects of variational distributions on learning in generative models from two perspectives... (read more)
