Unsupervised Deep Learning
This tutorial Unsupervised Deep Learning will cover in detail, the approach to simply ‘predict everything’ in the data, typically with a probabilistic model, which can be seen through the lens of the Minimum Description Length principle as an effort to compress the data as compactly as possible.
