In this lecture we will begin our discuss of unsupervised learning methods. In particular, we will study a particular kind of neural network known as an autoencoder.
Please study the following material in preparation for the class:
- Lecture 6 (6.1 to 6.7) of Hugo Larochelle’s course on Neural Networks.
- Chapter 10 of the Deep Learning Textbook.
Other relevant material:
- Lecture 15 ( 15a-15f ) of Geoff Hinton’s cousera course on Neural Networks.
