GIQA: Generated Image Quality Assessment
Shuyang Gu, Jianmin Bao, Dong Chen, Fang Wen
Generative adversarial networks (GANs) have achieved impressive results today, but not all generated images are perfect. A number of quantitative criteria have recently emerged for generative model, but none of them are designed for a single generated image. In this paper, we propose a new research topic, Generated Image Quality Assessment (GIQA), which quantitatively evaluates the quality of each generated image. We introduce three GIQA algorithms from two perspectives: learning-based and data-based. We evaluate a number of images generated by various recent GAN models on different datasets and demonstrate that they are consistent with human assessments. Furthermore, GIQA is available to many applications, like separately evaluate the realism and diversity of generative models, and enable online hard negative mining (OHEM) in the training of GANs to improve the results."
