This repository contains the code for the paper Learning to Draw Samples: With Application to Amortized MLE for Generative Adversarial Learning.
The code is based on the excellent implementation of DCGAN.
We evaluate our methods on MNIST and use a simple Gaussian-Bernoulli Restricted Boltzmann Machines (RBM) as our energy-based model, which allows us to accurately evaluate the test likelihood. SteinGAN without the kernel tends to produce much less diverse images. This suggests that the repulsive term is responsible for generating diverse images in SteinGAN.
We use the implementation of Wu et al., 2017 to evaluate the test log-likelihood.
