Generative models

Ongoing projects

Semantically-aware Discriminators

We build on successful cGAN models to propose a new semantically-aware discriminator that better guides the generator. We aim to learn a shared latent representation that encodes enough information to jointly do semantic segmentation, content reconstruction, along with a coarse-to-fine grained adversarial reasoning.

Collaborative Sampling in GANs

We propose a collaborative sampling scheme between the generator and discriminator for improved data generation. Guided by the discriminator, our approach refines generated samples through gradient-based optimization in the data (or feature / latent) space, shifting the generator distribution closer to the real data distribution.
