Objective: Use Runway to train my own StyleGAN2 model using images from Flicker.
I first scraped 3838 images from Flicker using the keyword “coffee”. Then, I uploaded the dataset to Runway. I used StyleGAN2 with Flickr Faces pre-trained model and 3000 steps to train my coffee model. After 5 hours, my model produced a FID 92.01. I suspect the high value is due to limited number of steps and the complexity of the dataset. Pictures in the dataset varied from people with coffee, people without coffee, brewed coffee, to actual coffee beans.
Here are some of my favorite synthesized images:
