Chapter 3: Deep Dive into Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs)

3.7 Practical Exercises of Chapter 3: Deep Dive into Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs)

3.7.1 Implementing a Simple GAN

In this exercise, you will implement a simple GAN using Keras. Your task is to create both the generator and discriminator and then train them. You can use the MNIST dataset for this exercise.

# Importing necessary libraries
from keras.datasets import mnist
from keras.layers import Input, Dense, Reshape, Flatten
from keras.layers import BatchNormalization
from keras.layers.advanced_activations import LeakyReLU
from keras.models import Sequential, Model
from keras.optimizers import Adam
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import numpy as np

# Set random seed for reproducibility
np.random.seed(1000)

# Load the dataset
(X_train, _), (_, _) = mnist.load_data()
X_train = (X_train.astype(np.float32) - 127.5) / 127.5
X_train = np.expand_dims(X_train, axis=3)

# Size of the noise vector, used as input to the Generator
z_dim = 100

# TODO: Implement the Generator and Discriminator here

# TODO: Define and compile the combined model here

# TODO: Train the GAN here

3.7.2 Implementing DCGAN

Next, you will implement a Deep Convolutional GAN (DCGAN). Similar to the previous exercise, your task is to create both the generator and discriminator and then train them. You can continue to use the MNIST dataset for this exercise.

# Importing necessary libraries
from keras.datasets import mnist
from keras.layers import Input, Dense, Reshape, Flatten, Conv2D, Conv2DTranspose
from keras.layers import BatchNormalization
from keras.layers.advanced_activations import LeakyReLU
from keras.models import Sequential, Model
from keras.optimizers import Adam
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import numpy as np

# Set random seed for reproducibility
np.random.seed(1000)

# Load the dataset
(X_train, _), (_, _) = mnist.load_data()
X_train = (X_train.astype(np.float32) - 127.5) / 127.5
X_train = np.expand_dims(X_train, axis=3)

# Size of the noise vector, used as input to the Generator
z_dim = 100

# TODO: Implement the Generator and Discriminator for DCGAN here

# TODO: Define and compile the combined model here

# TODO: Train the DCGAN here

Remember, these exercises are starting points for you to experiment. You can tweak the architecture, change the optimizer, or use a different dataset to see how these changes impact the GAN's performance. Be sure to try out different configurations and see what works best! 

Chapter 3 Conclusion

In this chapter, we delved deep into the realm of Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs), starting with their basic understanding and gradually expanding into their intricate architecture, training process, various modifications, and potential applications.

We began by grasping the conceptual underpinnings of GANs and how they revolutionize generative modeling by embodying a unique adversarial relationship between the generator and discriminator. This concept was further elaborated as we explored the architecture of GANs, unveiling the functionalities and intricacies of both the generator and discriminator networks.

As we ventured into the training process of GANs, we navigated the challenges of training stability, mode collapse, and the delicate balance that needs to be maintained to ensure effective learning. These challenges hint at the intricacy and nuanced nature of GANs, which further diversify with the emergence of various GAN variants.

From the foundational GAN structure, many creative and practical variations have emerged, each having its own merits and suited use cases. We briefly touched upon some of these variations, such as DCGAN, WGAN, and cGAN, each extending the scope and capability of the original GAN model.

Then we turned our attention to the exciting part of the potential applications of GANs. From generating realistic human faces to enhancing image resolution, augmenting data, generating art, and even influencing the fields of animation and gaming, GANs are painting a future with limitless possibilities.

Finally, we concluded with some practical exercises for you to get your hands dirty. This will provide a real sense of the GAN structure and how to implement and train them using Keras.

In the next chapter, we will focus on one of the most popular applications of GANs, which is generating new faces. The project-based approach will enable you to apply the theoretical knowledge you've acquired so far and gain practical experience in developing a GAN project from scratch. So, let's gear up and dive into the next chapter!

Stay curious, keep learning, and remember - with GANs, you're limited only by your imagination!
