Hands-On Generative Adversarial Networks with Keras
Your guide to implementing next-generation generative adversarial networks
About the Book
Develop generative models for a variety of real-world use-cases and deploy them to production
- Discover various GAN architectures using Python and Keras library
- Understand how GAN models function with the help of theoretical and practical examples
- Apply your learnings to become an active contributor to open source GAN applications
Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) have revolutionized the fields of machine learning and deep learning. This book will be your first step towards understanding GAN architectures and tackling the challenges involved in training them.
This book opens with an introduction to deep learning and generative models, and their applications in artificial intelligence (AI). You will then learn how to build, evaluate, and improve your first GAN with the help of easy-to-follow examples. The next few chapters will guide you through training a GAN model to produce and improve high-resolution images. You will also learn how to implement conditional GANs that give you the ability to control characteristics of GAN outputs. You will build on your knowledge further by exploring a new training methodology for progressive growing of GANs. Moving on, you'll gain insights into state-of-the-art models in image synthesis, speech enhancement, and natural language generation using GANs. In addition to this, you'll be able to identify GAN samples with TequilaGAN.
By the end of this book, you will be well-versed with the latest advancements in the GAN framework using various examples and datasets, and you will have the skills you need to implement GAN architectures for several tasks and domains, including computer vision, natural language processing (NLP), and audio processing.
