Course Lessons

Lesson 1

Introduction to Generative Adversarial Networks

Introduction to this course, prerequisites, and your course instructor.

Lesson 2

Generative Adversarial Networks

Ian Goodfellow, the inventor of GANs, introduces you to these exciting models. You'll also implement your own GAN on the MNIST dataset.

Lesson 3

Training a Deep Convolutional GANs

In this lesson, you'll implement a Deep Convolution GAN to generate complex color images.

Lesson 4

Image to Image Translation

Jun-Yan Zhu, one of the creators of the CycleGAN, will lead you through Pix2Pix and CycleGAN formulations that learn to do image-to-image translation tasks.

Lesson 5

Modern GANs

In this lesson, you will implement more advanced GAN architectural techniques that have had a significant impact on the realism of generated images.

Lesson 6 • Project

Face Generation

Define two adversarial networks, a generator, and a discriminator, and train them until you can generate realistic faces.
