[R] Weakly Supervised Disentanglement with Guarantees
We build a theoretical framework for analyzing disentanglement in the weakly supervised regime. We provide new definitions for disentanglement (sorry) that can be measured in a weakly supervised manner, and use these definitions as the cornerstone for developing a calculus and theory of disentanglement. We then analyzed several weak supervision techniques and proved (and empirically demonstrated) their disentanglement guarantees (or lack thereof).
We hope that the concepts developed in this paper will help researchers frame their discussion and analysis of weakly supervised disentanglement in future work.
