10/2017: RealNVP


#1

This Monday, @ferrine presented Density estimation using Real NVP. It’s a set of invertible transformation: you can think of it as a more expressive version of normalizing flow.
You can find an implementation in Tensorflow on Github (https://github.com/taesung89/real-nvp), and also a short comment from Hugo Larochelle.
