  • A variational autoencoder (VAE) derived from Tsallis statistics called q-VAE is proposed. In the proposed method, a standard VAE is employed to statistically extract latent space hidden in sampled data, and this latent space helps make robots controllable in feasible computational time and cost. To improve the usefulness of the latent space, this paper focuses on disentangled representation learning, e.g., $\beta$-VAE, which is the baseline for it. Starting from a Tsallis statistics perspective… CONTINUE READING
