  • Abstract: Generative adversarial networks (GANs) have made enormous progress in terms of theory and application in the machine learning and computer vision communities. Even though substantial progress has been made, a lack of quantitative model assessment is still a serious issue. This has led to a huge number of GAN variants being proposed, with relatively little understanding of their relative abilities. In this paper, we evaluate the performance of various types of GANs using divergence and distance functions typically used only for training. We observe consistency across the various proposed metrics, and interestingly, the test-time metrics do not favour networks that use the same training-time criterion.
