How to Get a Better GAN (Almost) for Free: Introducing the Metropolis-Hastings GAN


Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) have achieved impressive feats in realistic image generation and image repair. Art produced by a GAN has even been sold at auction for over $400,000!

At Uber, GANs have myriad potential applications, including strengthening our

Metropolis-Hastings Generative Adversarial Networks

R. Turner, J. Hung, Y. Saatci, J. Yosinski
We introduce the Metropolis-Hastings generative adversarial network (MH-GAN), which combines aspects of Markov chain Monte Carlo and GANs. The MH-GAN draws samples from the distribution implicitly defined by a GAN's discriminator-generator pair, as opposed to sampling in a standard GAN which draws samples from the distribution defined by the generator.

Bayesian Generative Adversarial Networks

Y. Saatchi, A. Wilson
Generative adversarial networks (GANs) can implicitly learn rich distributions over images, audio, and data which are hard to model with an explicit likelihood. We present a practical Bayesian formulation for unsupervised and semi-supervised learning with GANs. [...] [PDF]
