Project 1.2 - Deep Generative Models

In medical applications large data sets are generally not available, or they are unbalanced (containing much fewer abnormal, e.g. cancer cases, than normal data). We address the challenge of simulating abnormal training data by generative deep learning. The new technology is based on variational autoencoders, with approximate Bayesian computation and extensions for semi-supervised learning.
