Generative models

In the context of neural networks, generative models refers to those networks which output images. We’ve seen Deepdream and style transfer already, which can also be regarded as generative, but in contrast, those are produced by an optimization process in which convolutional neural networks are merely used as a sort of analytical tool. In generative models like autoencoders and generative adversarial networks, the convnets output the images themselves. This chapter will look at those two specifically.

Autoencoders

So far, we’ve mostly interpreted neural networks as being predictive, i.e. given some inputs, what is the output of – where it’s going, etc. But this is just a special case of a much more general capacity they have.
