Convolutional Autoencoders in TensorflowHow to implement a Convolutional Autoencoder using Tensorflow and DTB.
The convolution operator allows filtering an input signal in order to extract some part of its content. Autoencoders in their traditional formulation do not take into account the fact that a signal can be seen as a sum of other signals. Convolutional Autoencoders, instead, use the convolution operator to exploit this observation. They learn to encode the input in a set of simple signals and then try to reconstruct the input from them.
Introduction to Autoencoders
Autoencoders are neural networks models whose aim is to reproduce their input: this is trivial if the network has no constraints, but if the network is constrained the learning process becomes more interesting.
