TOKYO, January 31, 2019 - Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) announced today that it has developed a compact GAN (Generative Adversarial Network) based on Mitsubishi Electric's proprietary Maisart®* artificial intelligence (AI) technology. GANs derive from a new machine learning technology that synthesizes photo-realistic images by making two AIs ─ a generator and a discriminator-compete with each other. The computational complexity and memory footprint of the compact GAN is about one-tenth that of a conventional GAN,** a property which enables effective synthesis of the enormous number of images used for the training of other AIs.
* Mitsubishi Electric's AI creates the State-of-the- ART in Technology
** Based on an in-house comparison with our own implementation of a conventional GAN
