  • TL;DR: A framework for clustering that combines generalized EM with neural networks and can be implemented as an end-to-end differentiable recurrent neural network
  • Abstract: We introduce a novel framework for clustering that combines generalized EM with neural networks and can be implemented as an end-to-end differentiable recurrent neural network. It learns its statistical model directly from the data and can represent complex non-linear dependencies between inputs. We apply our framework to a perceptual grouping task and empirically verify that it yields the intended behavior as a proof of concept.
