Description

I will give a short introduction to (conditional) normalizing flows and discuss why they are essential to calculate "manageable" differentiable expectation values of continuous random variables. I will discuss some examples where this might be useful and end the talk with a github-package that combines some state of the art conditional normalizing flows to be used with minimal manual labor.
