Hands-On Generative Adversarial Networks with Keras

By: Rafael Valle

Overview of this book

Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) have revolutionized the fields of machine learning and deep learning. This book will be your first step toward understanding GAN architectures and tackling the challenges involved in training them. This book opens with an introduction to deep learning and generative models and their applications in artificial intelligence (AI). You will then learn how to build, evaluate, and improve your first GAN with the help of easy-to-follow examples. The next few chapters will guide you through training a GAN model to produce and improve high-resolution images. You will also learn how to implement conditional GANs that enable you to control characteristics of GAN output. You will build on your knowledge further by exploring a new training methodology for progressive growing of GANs. Moving on, you'll gain insights into state-of-the-art models in image synthesis, speech enhancement, and natural language generation using GANs. In addition to this, you'll be able to identify GAN samples with TequilaGAN. By the end of this book, you will be well-versed with the latest advancements in the GAN framework using various examples and datasets, and you will have developed the skills you need to implement GAN architectures for several tasks and domains, including computer vision, natural language processing (NLP), and audio processing.

Identifying GAN samples

Fake samples generated with the GANs (Goodfellow et al., 2014) framework have fooled humans and machines into believing that they are indistinguishable from real samples. Although this might be true for the naked eye and the discriminator fooled by the generator, it is unlikely that fake samples are numerically indistinguishable from real samples. Inspired by formal methods, this paper focuses on the evaluation of fake samples with respect to statistical summaries and formal specifications computed on the real data.

Since the Generative Adversarial Networks paper (Goodfellow et al., 2014), most GAN-related publications use a grid of image samples to accompany theoretical and empirical results. Unlike Variational Autoencoders (VAEs) and other models (Goodfellow et al., 2014), most of the evaluation of the output of GAN-trained Generators is qualitative:...
