Re-Training StyleGAN – A First Step Towards Building Large, Scalable Synthetic Facial Datasets

03/24/2020 ∙ by Viktor Varkarakis, et al. ∙ 25

StyleGAN is a state-of-art generative adversarial network architecture that generates random 2D high-quality synthetic facial data samples. In this paper, we recap the StyleGAN architecture and training methodology and present our experiences of retraining it on a number of alternative public datasets. Practical issues and challenges arising from the retraining process are discussed. Tests and validation results are presented and a comparative analysis of several different re-trained StyleGAN weightings is provided 1. The role of this tool in building large, scalable datasets of synthetic facial data is also discussed.
