The image synthesis technique is relatively well established which can generate facial images that are indistinguishable even by human beings. However, all of these approaches uses gradients to condition the output, resulting in the outputting the same image with the same input. Also, they can only generate images with basic expression or mimic an expression instead of generating compound expression. In real life, however, human expressions are of great diversity and complexity. In this paper…

Cascade EF-GAN: Progressive Facial Expression Editing With Local Focuses
The introduction of the local focus enables the Cascade EF-GAN to better preserve identity-related features and details around eyes, noses and mouths, which further helps reduce artifacts and blurs within the generated facial images.
Deep Identity-aware Transfer of Facial Attributes
A Deep convolutional network model for Identity-Aware Transfer of facial attributes that can provide a unified solution for several representative facial attribute transfer tasks, e.g., expression transfer, accessory removal, age progression, and gender transfer, and can be extended for other face enhancement tasks such as face hallucination.
Exploring the evolution of GANs through quality diversity
This paper proposes the application of a quality-diversity algorithm in the evolution of GANs, based on the Novelty Search with Local Competition (NSLC) algorithm, adapting the concepts used in COEGAN to this new proposal.
Evolutionary Multiobjective Optimization Driven by Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs)
This work proposes a multiobjective evolutionary algorithm driven by the generative adversarial networks (GANs) that is capable of generating promising offspring solutions in high-dimensional decision space with limited training data.
Multi-objective evolutionary GAN
A new algorithm is proposed, called Multi-Objective Evolutionary Generative Adversarial Network (MOEGAN), which reformulates the problem of training GANs as a multi-objective optimization problem, and Pareto dominance is used to select the best solutions.
AttGAN: Facial Attribute Editing by Only Changing What You Want
The proposed method is extended for attribute style manipulation in an unsupervised manner and outperforms the state-of-the-art on realistic attribute editing with other facial details well preserved.
StarGAN: Unified Generative Adversarial Networks for Multi-domain Image-to-Image Translation
A unified model architecture of StarGAN allows simultaneous training of multiple datasets with different domains within a single network, which leads to StarGAN's superior quality of translated images compared to existing models as well as the novel capability of flexibly translating an input image to any desired target domain.
STGAN: A Unified Selective Transfer Network for Arbitrary Image Attribute Editing
Arbitrary attribute editing generally can be tackled by incorporating encoder-decoder and generative adversarial networks. However, the bottleneck layer in encoder-decoder usually gives rise to
ColorMapGAN: Unsupervised Domain Adaptation for Semantic Segmentation Using Color Mapping Generative Adversarial Networks
A novel semantic segmentation framework that can generate fake training images that are semantically exactly the same as training images, but whose spectral distribution is similar to the distribution of the test images.
Unpaired Image-to-Image Translation using Cycle-Consistent Adversarial Networks
The architecture introduced in this paper learns a mapping function G : X 7→ Y using an adversarial loss such thatG(X) cannot be distinguished from Y , whereX and Y are images belonging to two
