Due to the rapid development of autonomous driving, the Internet of Things and streaming services, modern communication systems have to cope with varying channel conditions and a steadily rising number of users and devices. This, and the still rising bandwidth demands, can only be met by intelligent network automation, which requires highly flexible and blind transceiver algorithms. To tackle those challenges, we propose a novel adaptive equalization scheme, which exploits the prosperous…

Generative-Adversarial-Network Enabled Signal Detection for Communication Systems With Unknown Channel Models

A novel architecture using GAN is designed to directly learn the channel transition probability (CTP) from receiver observations, which is the only part of the Viterbi algorithm that is channel-dependent.

Fast and Accurate Optical Fiber Channel Modeling Using Generative Adversarial Network

A new data-driven fiber channel modeling method, generative adversarial network (GAN) is investigated to learn the distribution of fiber channel transfer function, and shows robust generalization abilities under different optical launch powers, modulation formats, and input signal distributions.

Adversarial Neural Networks for Error Correcting Codes

A general framework to further boost the performance and applicability of ML models by combining ML decoders with a competing discriminator network that tries to distinguish between codewords and noisy words, and, hence, guides the decoding models to recover transmittedcodewords.

Volterra and Wiener Equalizers for Short-Reach 100G PAM-4 Applications

The most critical points related to high-speed Volterra filter design and implementation are investigated and a simple guidance for filter complexity reduction and useful hints for channel acquisition are provided.

Improved Techniques for Training GANs

This work focuses on two applications of GANs: semi-supervised learning, and the generation of images that humans find visually realistic, and presents ImageNet samples with unprecedented resolution and shows that the methods enable the model to learn recognizable features of ImageNet classes.

Data Augmentation Generative Adversarial Networks

It is shown that a Data Augmentation Generative Adversarial Network (DAGAN) augments standard vanilla classifiers well and can enhance few-shot learning systems such as Matching Networks.

Generative Adversarial Nets

We propose a new framework for estimating generative models via an adversarial process, in which we simultaneously train two models: a generative model G that captures the data distribution, and a

This paper solves the general problem of adaptive channel equalization without resorting to a known training sequence or to conditions of limited distortion.

Batch Normalization: Accelerating Deep Network Training by Reducing Internal Covariate Shift

Applied to a state-of-the-art image classification model, Batch Normalization achieves the same accuracy with 14 times fewer training steps, and beats the original model by a significant margin.

Progressive Growing of GANs for Improved Quality, Stability, and Variation

A new training methodology for generative adversarial networks is described, starting from a low resolution, and adding new layers that model increasingly fine details as training progresses, allowing for images of unprecedented quality.
