E2GAN

Code for Off-Policy Reinforcement Learning for Efficient and Effective GAN Architecture Search, ECCV 2020.

Introduction

We formulate the GAN architecture search problem as a Markov decision process (MDP) inspired by the success of human-designed Progressive GAN. This new formulation enables us to discover competitive GAN architectures on a single 2080TI in 7 hours using off-policy RL.

Dependencies

conda create --name e2ganrl python=3.6
conda activate e2ganrl

conda install pytorch==1.4.0 torchvision==0.5.0 cudatoolkit=10.0 -c pytorch

python3 -m pip install imageio
python3 -m pip install scipy
python3 -m pip install six
python3 -m pip install numpy==1.18.1
python3 -m pip install python-dateutil==2.7.3
python3 -m pip install tensorboardX==1.6
# For the reward calculation, external tf code
python3 -m pip install tensorflow-gpu==1.13.1
python3 -m pip install tqdm==4.29.1

Code was tested on a RTX2080TI with 11GB RAM.

Prepare fid statistic file

Download the pre-calculated statistics from AutoGAN (Google Drive) to ./search/fid_statand ./eval/fid_stat .

Run E2GAN search on CIFAR-10

cd search
bash exps/search.sh

You will find the architectures in the log file ./search/search.log after running the above script.

Train from scratch the discovered architecture

To train from scratch and get the performance of your discovered architecture, run the following command (you should replace the architecture vector following "--arch" in the script with best-performing candidate architectures in the exploitation stage in search.log):

cd eval
# Train the discovered GAN on CIFAR-10
bash exps/train_derived.sh
# Train the discovered GAN on STL
bash exps/train_derived_stl.sh

Test the architecture reported in the paper

Run the following script:

cd eval
# Testing the pretrained CIFAR-10 Model
bash exps/test.sh
# Testing the pretrained STL Model
bash exps/test_stl.sh

Pre-trained models (both CIFAR and STL) are provided (Google Drive). Please put them in eval/checkpoints/ .
