Discriminators

# PatchGAN

Introduced by Isola et al. in Image-to-Image Translation with Conditional Adversarial Networks

PatchGAN is a type of discriminator for generative adversarial networks which only penalizes structure at the scale of local image patches. The PatchGAN discriminator tries to classify if each $N \times N$ patch in an image is real or fake. This discriminator is run convolutionally across the image, averaging all responses to provide the ultimate output of $D$. Such a discriminator effectively models the image as a Markov random field, assuming independence between pixels separated by more than a patch diameter. It can be understood as a type of texture/style loss.
