報告題目：Crossing-Domain Generative AdversarialNetworks for Unsupervised Multi-Domain Image-to-Image Translation
報告內容：State-of-the-art techniques in Generative Adversarial Networks(GANs) have shown remarkable success in image-to-image translationfrom peer domain X to domain Y using paired image data.However, obtaining abundant paired data is a non-trivial and expensiveprocess in the majority of applications. When there is aneed to translate images across n domains, if the training is performedbetween every two domains, the complexity of the trainingwill increase quadratically. Moreover, training with data from twodomains only at a time cannot benefit from data of other domains,which prevents the extraction of more useful features and hindersthe progress of this research area. In this work, we propose a generalframework for unsupervised image-to-image translation acrossmultiple domains, which can translate images from domain X toany a domain without requiring direct training between the twodomains involved in image translation. A byproduct of the frameworkis the reduction of computing time and computing resources,since it needs less time than training the domains in pairs as is donein state-of-the-art work. Our proposed framework consists of apair of encoders along with a pair of GANs which learns high-levelfeatures across different domains to generate diverse and realisticsamples from. Our framework shows competing results on manyimage-to-image tasks compared with state-of-the-art techniques.
