Composable Unpaired Image to Image Translation

Summary

There has been remarkable recent work in unpaired image-to-image translation. However, they're restricted to translation on a single pair of distributions, with some exceptions. In this study, we extend one of these works to a scalable multi-distribution translation mechanism. Our translation models not only converts from one distribution to another but can be stacked to create composite translation functions. We show that this composite property makes it possible to generate images with characteristics not seen in the training set. We also propose a decoupled training mechanism to train multiple distributions separately, which we show, generates better samples than isolated joint training. Further, we do a qualitative and quantitative analysis to assess the plausibility of the samples.

Usage

To train translation pairs separately, and to resume training. See the original instructions here

All the commands below should be run from within the nvidia_original/src directory.

To train a joint model (learning two pairs of distributions at the same time):

python cocogan_train_fourway.py --config ../exps/unit/blondbrunette_smiling_big.yaml --log ../logs

To train a join model, initializing the model from two separately trained models:

python cocogan_train_fourway.py --config ../exps/unit/blondbrunette_smiling_big.yaml --warm_start 1 --gen_ab /path/to/generator_ab --gen_cd /path/to/generator_cd --dis_ab /path/to/discriminator_ab --dis_cd /path/to/discriminator_cd --log ../logs

To generate doubly translated images with separately trained models:

python double_loop_separately_trained.py --config ../exps/unit/double_loop.yaml --gen_ab /path/to/generator_ab --gen_cd /path/to/generator_cd

To generate double translated images with a joint trained model:

python generate_images.py --config ../exps/unit/four_way_generate.yaml --gen /path/to/generator --dis /path/to/discriminator

Model

model

The images of people were selected from the celebA [1] dataset. This model extends the model proposed by M. Liu, T. Breuel, and J. Kautz in "Unsupervised image-to-image translation networks” [2].

Results

results1

For each triplet of images, the image on the left is the original image, selected from the celebA dataset [1]. They are all not smiling and not wearing glasses. The center image is the translation to not smiling and wearing glasses. The image on the right is the second translation to smiling and wearing glasses.

results1

For each triplet of images, the image on the left is the original image, selected from the celebA dataset [1]. They are all not smiling and have either blond or brown hair. The center image is the translation to not smiling and either blond or brunette, depending on the original hair color. The image on the right is the second translation to smiling

We are grateful to M. Liu, T. Breuel, and J. Kautz for making their research and codebase publicly available, without which this project would not have been possible, and to Professor Rob Fergus for his valuable advice.
