Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) are a type of artificial intelligence algorithm which has two different Neural Networks compete against each to gain knowledge. Introduced in 2014 by Ian Goodfellow, this technique can be successfully used to generate realistic photographs of objects, nature and even human faces. Other applications include removing noise from astrophysical images, generating new fake data for other neural networks, or even enhancing photos. You know how in movies, the FBI always does that cool zoom on a photo of a suspect? GANs can be used to actually do that!
This course begins with the basics and intuition of GANs, introducing the the two types of Models – Discriminative and Generative – and their specific tasks in the algorithm. Continuing through this course, you’ll learn the difference between regular GANs, DCGANs (Deep Convolutional GANs) and AC-GANs (Auxiliary Classifer GANs), and how to implement them using Python.
What you’ll learn:
- Classifying the data as real or artificially generated through a Discriminator
- Fooling the Discriminator into believing generated data is real via a Generator
- Analyzing the problem using Game Theory
- Training a GAN – including an intuition of the algorithm and the math behind it
- Tips and tricks – normalizing data, optimization, label smoothing and more
- Challenges of training GANs – mode colapse, counting, perspective and Global Structure
Frameworks and tools covered: Python 3.5, Anaconda 5.0, NumPy 1.13, Matplotlib 2.1, Tensorflow 1.4, Keras 2.1

I love the lectures, concise course objectives, and how they not only teach you enough to get started, but prepare you for the advanced stuff later down the road.
– Mihir Patel
With Zenva, I started learning a more accurate way to approach problems and develop solutions. It’s full of interesting topics that I love to learn in conjunction with my work.
– Monica Mancusi
I chose Zenva because of the large selection of topics and the fact that I can choose what courses I want to take whenever I want to take them. That level of freedom is unique to Zenva.
– Craig Bickford
The Unity courses at Zenva helped me achieve a level of comfort with game development that I didn’t think was possible. They give you the confidence to expand your skills, and were so easy to understand.
