Flipped-Adversarial AutoEncoders

  title={Flipped-Adversarial AutoEncoders},
  author={Jiyi Zhang and Hung Dang and Hwee Kuan Lee and Ee-Chien Chang},
  journal={arXiv: Learning},
We propose a flipped-Adversarial AutoEncoder (FAAE) that simultaneously trains a generative model G that maps an arbitrary latent code distribution to a data distribution and an encoder E that embodies an "inverse mapping" that encodes a data sample into a latent code vector. Unlike previous hybrid approaches that leverage adversarial training criterion in constructing autoencoders, FAAE minimizes re-encoding errors in the latent space and exploits adversarial criterion in the data space…

Feature Learning with Adversarial Networks for Concept Detection in Medical Images: UA.PT Bioinformatics at ImageCLEF 2018
A set of feature learning approaches for the concept detection sub-task of ImageCLEF, which consists on a traditional bag of words algorithm, using ORB keypoint descriptors, and a variant of generative adversarial networks with an auto-encoding process.
Guided-GAN: Adversarial Representation Learning for Activity Recognition with Wearables
This paper explores generative adversarial network (GAN) paradigms to learn unsupervised feature representations from wearable sensor data; and designs a new GAN framework—GeometricallyGuided GAN or Guided-GAN—for the task.


Precise Recovery of Latent Vectors from Generative Adversarial Networks
Stochastic clipping is introduced, a simple, gradient-based technique called stochastic clipping that precisely recover their latent vector pre-images 100% of the time and appears to recover unique encodings for unseen images.
Conditional Generative Adversarial Nets
The conditional version of generative adversarial nets is introduced, which can be constructed by simply feeding the data, y, to the generator and discriminator, and it is shown that this model can generate MNIST digits conditioned on class labels.
Adversarial Feature Learning
Bidirectional Generative Adversarial Networks are proposed as a means of learning the inverse mapping of GANs, and it is demonstrated that the resulting learned feature representation is useful for auxiliary supervised discrimination tasks, competitive with contemporary approaches to unsupervised and self-supervised feature learning.
Adversarially Learned Inference
The adversarially learned inference (ALI) model is introduced, which jointly learns a generation network and an inference network using an adversarial process and the usefulness of the learned representations is confirmed by obtaining a performance competitive with state-of-the-art on the semi-supervised SVHN and CIFAR10 tasks.
Invertible Conditional GANs for image editing
This work evaluates encoders to inverse the mapping of a cGAN, i.e., mapping a real image into a latent space and a conditional representation, which allows to reconstruct and modify real images of faces conditioning on arbitrary attributes.
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
Stacked Generative Adversarial Networks
A novel generative model named Stacked Generative Adversarial Networks (SGAN), which is trained to invert the hierarchical representations of a bottom-up discriminative network, which is able to generate images of much higher quality than GANs without stacking.
Bidirectional Conditional Generative Adversarial Networks
The Bidirectional cGAN (BiCoGAN), which effectively disentangles z and c in the generation process and provides an encoder that learns inverse mappings from $x$ to both $z and $c$, trained jointly with the generator and the discriminator.

A generative parametric model capable of producing high quality samples of natural images using a cascade of convolutional networks within a Laplacian pyramid framework to generate images in a coarse-to-fine fashion.
