As an important type of deep learning methods, deep generative models provide a suite of flexible tools on revealing the latent structures underlying complex data and performing "top-down" inference to generate samples. In this talk, I will present some recent results on learning with deep generative models, including the basic theory and algorithms, semi-supervised learning with deep generative models, and ZhuSuan--a GPU library to support probabilistic programming and efficient inference.
