This repository shows an example of how to use MATLAB to generate synthetic images of skin lesions.
The code is based on an example using the flowers dataset available online.
|Snapshot of the GAN after training. (L) generated images; (R) generator (blue) and discriminator (red) curves showing score (between 0 and 1, where 0.5 is best) for each iteration.|
|Examples of synthetically generated images.|
- MATLAB 2021a or later
- Deep Learning Toolbox
- Parallel Computing Toolbox (only required for training using a GPU)
- Download or clone the repository.
- Open MATLAB.
- Edit the contents of the
imageFoldervariable in the
skin_lesion_gan.mlxfile to reflect the path to your selected dataset.
- Run the
skin_lesion_gan.mlxscript and inspect results.
- You are encouraged to expand and adapt the example to your needs.
- The choice of network architectures for both the generator and discriminator was inspired by the DCGAN.
- The choice of hyperparameters (learning rate, mini-batch size, number of epochs, etc.) is merely illustrative. You are encouraged to (use Experiment Manager to) tweak those choices and find a better solution 2.
 This example uses a fairly small subset of images to make it easier to get started without having to worry about large downloads and long training times.
