Generative adversarial networks (GANs) have seen widespread use in computer graphics and computer vision over recent years. However, they come with several drawbacks, including mode collapse, unstable training, and ambiguous convergence criteria. Moreover, conditional GANs often generate samples with limited diversity, posing significant challenges for many applications. In this talk, I will introduce normalizing flows, a unique type of generative network, discussing both their advantages and limitations. Following this, I will present various problems we have addressed using normalizing flows, such as icon colorization, basketball play synthesis, shuttle landing distribution modeling, noisy label training, and substituting datasets with normalizing flows.
