© Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2018. Generative adversarial nets (GANs) are effective framework for constructing data models and enjoys desirable theoretical justification. On the other hand, realizing GANs for practical complex data distribution often requires careful configuration of the generator, discriminator, objective function and training method and can involve much non-trivial effort. We propose an novel family of generative adversarial nets (GANs), where we employ both continuous noise and random binary codes in the generating process. The binary codes in the new GAN model (named BGANs) play the role of categorical latent variables helps improve the model capability and training stability when dealing with complex data distributions. BGAN has been evaluated and compared with existing GANs trained with the state-of-the-art method on both synthetic and practical data. The empirical evaluation shows effectiveness of BGAN.
