This paper presents an alternative framework for generative modeling that is deterministic. They suggest that sampling from a stochastic encoder within a VAE can be interpreted as injecting noise into the input of a deterministic decoder and propose a framework for a regularized deterministic autoencoder (RAE) to generate samples that are comparable or better than those produced by VAE's.
