In recent times, many of the breakthroughs in various vision-related tasks have revolved around improving learning of deep models; these methods have ranged from network architectural improvements such as Residual Networks, to various forms of regularisation such as Batch Normalisation. In essence, many of these techniques revolve around better conditioning, allowing for deeper and deeper models to be successfully learned. In this paper, we look towards better conditioning Generative…

This work introduces several ways of regularizing the objective, which can dramatically stabilize the training of GAN models and shows that these regularizers can help the fair distribution of probability mass across the modes of the data generating distribution, during the early phases of training and thus providing a unified solution to the missing modes problem.
