- Abstract: We propose a novel autoencoding model called Pairwise Augmented GANs. We train a generator and an encoder jointly and in an adversarial manner. The generator network learns to sample realistic objects. In turn the encoder network at the same time in turn is trained to map the true data distribution to the prior in a latent space. To ensure good reconstructions we introduce an augmented adversarial reconstruction loss. Here we train a discriminator to distinguish two types of pairs: the object with its augmentation and the one with its reconstruction. We show that such adversarial loss compares objects based on the content rather than on the exact match. We experimentally demonstrate that our model generates samples and reconstructions of quality competitive with state-of-the-art on datasets MNIST, CIFAR10, CelebA and achieves good quantitative results on CIFAR10.
