Title: Artistic Style Transfer With Generative Adversarial Networks

Speaker:  Dr. Kaustuv Nag, IIIT Guwahati


This talk will present a new method for artistic style transfer using generative adversarial networks (GANs). The proposed method combines content from an input image with style from an artistic image to produce a new stylized image. This talk will present some essential concepts related to GANs and explain how these concepts contribute to the proposed scheme. It will also showcase the proposed scheme's results, highlighting the effectiveness of the GAN-based approach.
