Recent Work

In our recent work, Real or not Real, that is the Question, we propose a generalization to the standard GAN framework, where we treat the concept of realness as a random variable rather than a single scale. Consequently, the proposed framework, RealnessGAN, can not only train the generator with a loss of maximizing KL divergence, but also train a nonprogressive DCGAN to produce realistic images at 1024x1024 resolution.
