Generative adversarial networks (GANs) are an exciting recent innovation in machine learning. GANs are generative models: they create new data instances that resemble your training data. For example, GANs can create images that look like photographs of human faces, even though the faces don't belong to any real person. These images were created by a GAN:

GANs achieve this level of realism by pairing a generator, which learns to produce the target output, with a discriminator, which learns to distinguish true data from the output of the generator. The generator tries to fool the discriminator, and the discriminator tries to keep from being fooled.
This course covers GAN basics, and also how to use the TF-GAN library to create GANs.
This course assumes you have:
- Completed Machine Learning Crash Course either in-person or self-study.
- At least a little experience programming with TensorFlow
