Stable Distribution Alignment Using the Dual of the Adversarial Distance

  title={Stable Distribution Alignment Using the Dual of the Adversarial Distance},
  author={Ben Usman and Kate Saenko and Brian Kulis},
Methods that align distributions by minimizing an adversarial distance between them have recently achieved impressive results. However, these approaches are difficult to optimize with gradient descent and they often do not converge well without careful hyperparameter tuning and proper initialization. We investigate whether turning the adversarial min-max problem into an optimization problem by replacing the maximization part with its dual improves the quality of the resulting alignment and…

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

Coupled Generative Adversarial Networks

This work proposes coupled generative adversarial network (CoGAN), which can learn a joint distribution without any tuple of corresponding images, and applies it to several joint distribution learning tasks, and demonstrates its applications to domain adaptation and image transformation.

Image-to-Image Translation with Conditional Adversarial Networks

Conditional adversarial networks are investigated as a general-purpose solution to image-to-image translation problems and it is demonstrated that this approach is effective at synthesizing photos from label maps, reconstructing objects from edge maps, and colorizing images, among other tasks.

Photo-Realistic Single Image Super-Resolution Using a Generative Adversarial Network

SRGAN, a generative adversarial network (GAN) for image super-resolution (SR), is presented, to its knowledge, the first framework capable of inferring photo-realistic natural images for 4x upscaling factors and a perceptual loss function which consists of an adversarial loss and a content loss.

Adversarial Discriminative Domain Adaptation

It is shown that ADDA is more effective yet considerably simpler than competing domain-adversarial methods, and the promise of the approach is demonstrated by exceeding state-of-the-art unsupervised adaptation results on standard domain adaptation tasks as well as a difficult cross-modality object classification task.

Unsupervised Image-to-Image Translation with Generative Adversarial Networks

This work develops a two step (unsupervised) learning method to translate images between different domains by using unlabeled images without specifying any correspondence between them, so that to avoid the cost of acquiring labeled data.

Generative Moment Matching Networks

This work forms a method that generates an independent sample via a single feedforward pass through a multilayer perceptron, as in the recently proposed generative adversarial networks, using MMD to learn to generate codes that can then be decoded to produce samples.

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.

Unsupervised Pixel-Level Domain Adaptation with Generative Adversarial Networks

This generative adversarial network (GAN)-based method adapts source-domain images to appear as if drawn from the target domain, and outperforms the state-of-the-art on a number of unsupervised domain adaptation scenarios by large margins.

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
