Image compression

starter code

In this project we will implement a image compression network. The format will be similar to project 1, where you are expected implement a encode and a decode function. Your encoder/decoder are expected to perform three levels of compression, compressing 256x256 images to latent vectors no larger than 4kB, 16kB, and 64kB respectively. You may use any architecture to achieve this task, but using one of the following algorithms:

We provide a python starter code which contains a project and a val_grader. During testing we will evaluate your algorithm on the image quality on the reconstructed images on all three compression levels:


You can use python -m val_grader project -v to test your solution against the grader.
