Improving Image Classification with Generative Adversarial Networks

Generative adversarial networks (GANs) are one of the most promising areas in deep learning research. In this presentation we will briefly introduce GANs and see how they can be used in the real world - specifically for unsupervised learning and synthesizing data sets. We will analyze their strengths, weaknesses, and potential for future break-throughs. Waya.ai uses GANs for a few different tasks in skin cancer detection (image classification), and we will compare the results obtained when using GANs to more standard state of the art deep learning approaches.
