Training a denoising autoencoder with noisy data
How do you denoise images with an autoencoder if you don’t have a clean version to train with? One option is to add more noise to your images! In this experiment, I trained an autoencoder with noisy MNIST data. I began with MNIST images on the bottom row, the noiseless versions. To simulate observational data, I added Gaussian noise to the images. In reality, we may never have access to these noiseless images.
