Title:  Two sides of one tapestry: Joint Source-Channel Coding and Deep Generative Models


Dr. Fekri, Advisor

Dr. Bloch, Chair

Dr. AlRegib


The objective of the proposed research is to study the intersection between Joint Source-Channel Coding and Deep Generative Models. For Joint Source-Channel Coding we explore how deep learning techniques can be used to design encoders and decoders for problems where human intuition has failed to give us good performing solutions. We also show that Joint Source-Channel Coding problem can be posed as a Variational Autoencoder learning problem thus allowing us to make use of the vast literature in machine learning. On the other side, we will also explore how the insight gained from Joint Source-Channel Coding can benefit the field of Deep Generative Models specifically in terms of improving their training algorithms.
