A variational autoencoder (VAE) is a type of artificial neural network architecture used in machine learning. It is a probabilistic generative model that consists of an encoder and decoder neural network. The encoder maps the input to a latent space, while the decoder maps from the latent space back to the input space to generate data points. VAEs can be used for unsupervised, semi-supervised, and supervised learning tasks.
