Awesome-GANs with Tensorflow

Tensorflow implementation of GANs (Generative Adversarial Networks)

Awesome License: MIT Language grade: Python

WIP : This repo is about to be refactored & supporting tf 2.x.

Maybe some codes wouldn't work on master branch, because i'm just working on the branch.


Because of the image and model size, (especially BEGAN, SRGAN, StarGAN, ... using high resolution images as input), if you want to train them comfortably, you need a GPU which has more than 8GB.

But, of course, the most of the implementations use MNIST or CIFAR-10, 100 DataSets. Meaning that we can handle it with EVEN lower spec GPU than 'The Preferred' :).


Now on refactoring... All GAN training script can be run module-wisely like below. (WIP)

Install dependencies

You can also use conda, virtualenv environments.

$ python3 -m pip install -r requirements.txt

Train GANs

Before running the model, make sure that

  1. downloading the dataset like CelebA, MNIST, etc what you want
  2. In awesome_gans/, there are several configurations, customize with your flavor!
  3. running the model like below
$ python3 -m awesome_gans.acgan


Supporting datasets are ... (code is in /awesome_gans/

  • MNIST / Fashion MNIST
  • CIFAR10 / 100
  • CelebA/CelebA-HQ
  • Pix2Pix
  • DIV2K
  • (more DataSets will be added soon!)
