Variational Autoencoders for Recommendation

We can turn a simple autoencoder into something sophisticated. Autoencoders discover a latent mapping z, which as a lower-dimensional representation of the input x, can be useful for pre-training networks and creating recommender models. However, how autoencoders compress information may come in millions of ways. To truly polish how z can be generated, we turn […]
