The training of Generative Adversarial Networks is a difficult task mainly due to the nature of the networks. One such issue is when the generator and discriminator start oscillating, rather than converging to a fixed point. Another case can be when one agent becomes more adept than the other which results in the decrease of the other agent's ability to learn, reducing the learning capacity of the system as a whole. Additionally, there exists the problem of Mode Collapse which involves the

To train GANs a careful selection of the architecture that is used along with a variety of other methods to improve training. Even when applying these methods there is low stability of training in relation to the parameters that are chosen. Stochastic ensembling is suggested as a method for improving the stability while training GANs.
