Variational autoencoders and GANs have been two of the most interesting recent developments in deep learning and machine learning. GAN stands for generative adversarial network, where two neural networks compete with each other. Unsupervised learning means you're not trying to map input data to targets, you're just trying to learn the structure of that input data. In this course, you'll learn the structure of data in order to produce more stuff that resembles the original data.

The Lazy Programmer is a data scientist, big data engineer, and full stack software engineer. For his master's thesis he worked on brain-computer interfaces using machine learning. These assist non-verbal and non-mobile persons to communicate with their family and caregivers.
He has worked in online advertising and digital media as both a data scientist and big data engineer, and built various high-throughput web services around said data. He has created new big data pipelines using Hadoop/Pig/MapReduce, and created machine learning models to predict click-through rate, news feed recommender systems using linear regression, Bayesian Bandits, and collaborative filtering and validated the results using A/B testing.
He has taught undergraduate and graduate students in data science, statistics, machine learning, algorithms, calculus, computer graphics, and physics for students attending universities such as Columbia University, NYU, Humber College, and The New School.
