Generative models are a key paradigm for probabilistic reasoning within graphical models and probabilistic programming languages. It is one of the exciting and rapidly-evolving fields of statistical machine learning and artificial intelligence. Recent advances in parameterizing generative models using deep neural networks, combined with progress in stochastic optimization methods, have enabled scalable modeling of complex, high-dimensional data including images, text, and speech. In this course, we will study the probabilistic foundations and learning algorithms for deep generative models and discuss application areas that have benefitted from deep generative models.
