Facial recognition is a major class of biometric technology which is increasing its market share while expanding its applications across multiple industries.
PixelGAN is an autoencoder for which the generative path is a convolutional autoregressive neural network on pixels, conditioned on a latent code, and the recognition path uses a generative adversarial network (GAN) to impose a prior distribution on the latent code.
We explore top-notch Swiss AI facilities: starting with deep learning and neural network research at IDSIA in Lugano, to interdisciplinary research at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and University of Basel, and ending with robotics innovations at ETH in Zurich and University of Zurich.
In 2015, Anh Nguyen published a paper in CVPR that identified a limit in computer vision, where you can fool a deep neural network (DNN) by changing an image in a way that’s imperceptible to humans, but can cause the DNN to label the image as something else entirely.
New autoencoder-like generative network, called Adversarial Generator-Encoder Networks (AGE Network), does not have any discriminators, which makes the entire architecture much simpler than some recently-proposed GANs, but with nearly the same-level performance
