    Neural Image Compression

    There are some obvious shortcomings to this method - such as, that it only caters for image data, cannot be adjusted to attain a variable bitrate, short of training a different model, and is unrealistically slow for practical applications.

    I'm not a traditional compression expert, so would appreciate any insight about the deficiencies of this method from those who are. Note this is not my original idea and is a reimplementation.
