The Raspberry Pi 4 Model B is the latest version of the low-cost Raspberry Pi computer platform. In short, it’s a credit-card sized electronic board that can function as a stand-alone computer.

The Raspberry Pi 4 can do a surprising amount. Amateur tech enthusiasts use Pi boards as media centers, file servers, retro games console, routers, and network-level ad-blockers, for starters. However that is just a taste of what’s possible. There are hundreds of projects out there, where people have used the Pi to build tablets, laptops, phones, robots, smart mirrors, to take pictures on the edge of space, to run experiments on the International Space Station — and that’s without mentioning the more wacky creations — teabag dunker anyone?

Generative models, commonly referred to as GANs, are a family of AI architectures whose aim is to create data samples from scratch. They work by capturing the data distributions of the type of things we want to generate.

Here’s an interesting read on the topic.

These kind of models are being heavily researched, and there is a huge amount of hype around them. Just look at the chart that shows the numbers of papers published in the field over the past few years:
