Mode collapse is a critical problem in training generative adversarial networks. To alleviate mode collapse, several recent studies introduce new objective functions, network architectures or alternative training schemes. However, their achievement is often the result of sacrificing the image quality. In this paper, we propose a new algorithm, namely a manifold guided generative adversarial network (MGGAN), which leverages a guidance network on existing GAN architecture to induce generator

In particular, we demonstrate that our algorithm is easily extendable to various existing GANs. Experimental analysis justifies that the proposed algorithm is an effective and efficient tool for training GANs.
