NVIDIA researchers, led by Ting-Chun Wang, have developed a new deep learning-based, artificial intelligence system that can generate photo-realistic images using only high-level labels, and at the same time creating a virtual environment that allows the user to modify a scene interactively. The method, which uses a conditional generative adversarial network (GAN), has the potential to revolutionize how visual algorithms, including those for medical imaging, are trained. "Conditional GANs have enabled a variety of applications, but the results are often limited to low-resolution and still far from realistic. In this work, we generate 2048x1024 visually appealing results with a novel adversarial loss, as well as new multi-scale generator and discriminator architectures," said the researchers in their paper.
