We consider the closely related problems of sampling from a distribution
known up to a normalizing constant, and estimating said normalizing constant.
We show how variational autoencoders (VAEs) can be applied to this task. In
their standard applications, VAEs are trained to fit data drawn from an
intractable distribution. We invert the logic and train the VAE to fit a simple
and tractable distribution, on the assumption of a complex and intractable
latent distribution, specified up to normalization. This procedure …
