Continual Representation Learning for Images with Variational Continual Auto-Encoder

Ik Jeon, Soo Shin

Abstract

We propose a novel architecture for the continual representation learning for images, called variational continual auto-encoder (VCAE). Our approach builds a time-variant parametric model that generates images close to the observation by using optimized approximate inference over time. When the dataset is sequentially observed, the model efficiently learns underlying representations without forgetting previously acquired knowledge. Through experiments, we evaluate the development of test log-likelihood over time, which shows resistance to the catastrophic forgetting. The results show that VCAE has stronger immunity against catastrophic forgetting in comparison to the benchmark while VCAE requires much less time for training.
