We propose a Loss-Sensitive GAN (LS-GAN),
along with a generalized version (GLS-GAN)
unifying both WGAN
We prove both consistency and generalizability of the LS-GAN. See more
details in [pdf]
and the Appendix D. Moreover, you might be interested in taking a look
at an incomplete map of GANs in our view [url].
- The recent version
uses a projection onto the
manifold of real data to calculate the margin between fake and real
samples. Thus, the vanishing projection
would be a better indicator of how well fake samples are generated
compared with their real sample counterparts.
Details can be
found at [pdf].

convolutional model was develop that can be deployed on mobile devices. Two
types of group convolutions, a primal group sparse convolution
a dual point-wise permutation convolution, are developed to make the
model more efficient. [pdf]

In these papers, (1) we developed deep networks to reveal the
brain neural connectivity by aligning time-series
neuron fires that are marked by calcium influx; (2) we
invented a new paradigm
of dynamic model to select and predict sensors and their readings over
time, as compared with the conventional static strategy; and (3) we
