12:30PM – 2:30PM: Lunch and Demos (in the Huang Basement Level)
2:30PM - 4:30PM: Deep Learning Institute Workshop, Image Creation using Generative Adversarial Networks with TensorFlow and DIGITS (in Huang 300)


Topic: Image Creation using Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN) with TensorFlow and DIGITS
Instructor: Jonathan Bentz
This Lab will guide you through the process of training a Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) to generate image contents in DIGITS. You will learn how to: 
  • Use Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) to create handwritten numbers
  • Visualize the feature space and use attribute vector to generate image analogies
  • Train a GAN to generate images with set attributes
Upon completion of this Section, you will be able to use GANs to generate images by manipulating feature space.
Important Note: Each workshop participant must bring their own laptop to the event in order to run the DLI Lab. A current browser is needed. For optimal performance, Chrome, Firefox or Safari for Macs are recommended. IE is operational but does not provide the best performance.
