Why variational autoencoder(VAE) uses reconstruction loss?

VAE is trained to reduce following two losses. KL divergence between inferred latent distribution and Gaussian. the reconstruction loss I understand that first one regularize VAE to get structured latent space. My question is, why and how does the second loss help VAE to work? During training of the VAE, we first feed an image […]
