An Exploration of BigGAN’s Truncation Threshold to Create Artistic (Horrific?) Images of Masks

Some cool images of “masks” generated by a BigGAN model using a high truncation threshold which lets us control the variety of the images. They were generated on this demo page, with a model that was already trained for me. The paper introducing the truncation threshold (or truncation trick) is “Large Scale GAN Training for High … Continue reading An Exploration of BigGAN’s Truncation Threshold to Create Artistic (Horrific?)

This guide heavily relies on existing guides, documentation and papers, and simply points you in good directions. First of all, if you are … Continue reading Getting Started with the StarCraft 2 Learning Environment

A Neural Network-based StarCraft Bot Plays against Humans

We have tested a new version of our StarCraft bot against some skilled StarCraft players. These games were exciting to watch, especially because our bot used a neural network for build order planning. Videos showing two of these matches are included. A Simple StarCraft Bot A few month ago, I decided to develop a StarCraft … Continue reading A Neural Network-based StarCraft Bot Plays against Humans
