GANs and Roses

Course Description

In this course, we will briefly overview some generative models that existed before GANs, go through the history of GANs and their applications to real-life problems, like image super-resolution, deblurring, and style transfer.

Syllabus:

1. Overview of different generative models and their issues
Hidden Markov Model. Restricted Boltzman Machine. Variational Autoencoders.

2. GAN and cGAN
A brief introduction to GAN idea. Vanilla convolutional GANs.

3. Application of GANs to real-life problems
Image super-resolution, deblurring and style transfer.

4. What is wrong with GANs? Modern approaches to GANs training and latest results.
Wasserstein GAN. Improved Training of Wasserstein GANs. What is wrong with Prisma app and how to fix it?
