GANs are a pair of neural networks that compete with each other, with the generator creating fake images and the discriminator trying to identify them, resulting in the generator improving until it can create realistic images.
Simple neural networks in a world called slanted land can generate faces using GANs by assigning pixel values, building a discriminator to classify images as faces or non-faces.
The generator in a GAN uses a neural network to produce images of faces by assigning specific values to pixels, and training the network is necessary to optimize the weights for better results.
The error function in a generative adversarial network is defined as the negative logarithm of the prediction, with small errors for close predictions to 1 and large errors for close predictions to 0.
The error functions for training the generator and discriminator in GANs are based on negative logarithm of predictions, and the training process involves back propagation to calculate the error and adjust the weights.
The generator creates images and the discriminator determines if they are real or fake, with the goal of the generator being to create realistic images; the error functions and weight updates improve their predictions.
The process of training GANs involves randomly selecting values, generating fake images, updating weights, and repeating to generate realistic faces and distinguish between faces and non-faces based on corner size.
