Energy-based Generative Adversarial Network

  title={Energy-based Generative Adversarial Network},
  author={Junbo Jake Zhao and Micha{\"e}l Mathieu and Yann LeCun},
We introduce the "Energy-based Generative Adversarial Network" model (EBGAN) which views the discriminator as an energy function that attributes low energies to the regions near the data manifold and higher energies to other regions. [] Key Method Viewing the discriminator as an energy function allows to use a wide variety of architectures and loss functionals in addition to the usual binary classifier with logistic output. Among them, we show one instantiation of EBGAN framework as using an auto-encoder…
Adversarial Fisher Vectors for Unsupervised Representation Learning
This work examines Generative Adversarial Networks through the lens of deep Energy Based Models (EBMs), and proposes to evaluate both the generator and the discriminator by deriving corresponding Fisher Score and Fisher Information from the EBM.
Self-Attention Generative Adversarial Networks
The proposed SAGAN achieves the state-of-the-art results, boosting the best published Inception score from 36.8 to 52.52 and reducing Frechet Inception distance from 27.62 to 18.65 on the challenging ImageNet dataset.
On Depth and Complexity of Generative Adversarial Networks
While training tends to oscillate and not benefit from additional capacity of naively stacked layers, GANs are capable of generating samples with higher quality, specifically for images, samples of higher visual fidelity given proper regularization and careful balancing.

Unregularized Auto-Encoder with Generative Adversarial Networks for Image Generation
A new Auto-Encoder Generative Adversarial Networks (AEGAN) is proposed, which takes advantages of both VAE and GAN and maps the random vector into the encoded latent space by adversarial training based on GAN.
Depth and Complexity of Deep Generative Adversarial Networks
It is shown that GANs are capable of generating images of higher visual fidelity with proper regularization and simple techniques such as minibatch discrimination and an architecture similar to the standard GAN with residual blocks in the hidden layers consistently achieve higher inception scores than the standard model without noticeable mode collapse.

A novel method for training of GANs for unsupervised and class conditional generation of images, called Linear Discriminant GAN (LD-GAN), which provides a concrete metric of separation capacity for the discriminator.
IAN: Combining Generative Adversarial Networks for Imaginative Face Generation
This work proposes a new regularizer for GAN based on K-nearest neighbor (K-NN) selective feature matching to a target set Y in high-level feature space, during the adversarial training of GAN on the base set X, and introduces a cascade of such GANs as the Imaginative Adversarial Network (IAN).


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.
