Ambu Karthik is a 2nd year undergraduate student at the RV College of Engineering. Ambu has worked on robotics, data analysis and networking in previous projects. HPCC Systems provides a great combination of networking and big data analysis alongside using machine learning, which provides a great opportunity to expand his knowledge within his specific areas of his interest.
HPCC Systems, an open source cluster computing platform for big data analytics consists of Generalized Neural Network bundle with a wide variety of features which can be used for various neural network applications. To enhance the functionality of the bundle, this paper proposes the design and development of Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) on HPCC Systems platform using ECL, a declarative language on which HPCC Systems works.
GANs have been developed on the HPCC Platform by defining the Generator and Discriminator models separately, and training them by batches in the same epoch. In order to make sure that they train as adversaries, a certain weights transfer methodology was implemented. MNIST dataset which has been used to test the proposed approach has provided satisfactory results. The results obtained were unique images very similar to the MNIST dataset, as it were expected.
