  • Motivate Unsupervised Learning
  • Consider using a different distribution for the prior: L1 norm for example
  • What has changed in the behavior of the ConVAE in comparison with VAE from an Information Theory perspective
  • Mathematical proof that it can work in all datasets
  • Train later on ImageNet
