TransGAN: Two Transformers Can Make One Strong GAN

Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) hold the state-of-the-art when it comes to image generation. However, while the rest of computer vision is slowly taken over by transformers or other attention-based architectures, all working GANs to date contain some form of convolutional layers. This paper changes that and builds TransGAN, the first GAN where both the generator […]

The Most Important Topic in Machine Learning right now

Karolina Sowinska  discusses the most important topic in Machine Learning right now, namely model explainability. It is one of the hottest discussion points in the data community, because ultimately if we cannot understand how the models arrive at the predictions, it renders them useless in many practical applications.
