Research Projects

  • Effect of Sparsity on Disentanglement: Several sparsity-inducing penalties are implemented within the Variational Autoencoders framework to quantify their effect on learning disentangled representations (a more detailed description can be found on my Research School page).
  • Disentangling via Transformation-Robust Representations: Invariance against groups of transformations on particular latent space dimensions is imposed, allowing to incorporate prior knowledge on a weakly-supervised level.
