In machine learning, a generative model learns to generate samples that have a high probability of being real samples like the samples from the training dataset. Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) are a very hot topic in Machine Learning.
Adversarial training (also called GAN for Generative Adversarial Networks), and the variations that are now being proposed, is the most interesting idea in the last 10 years in ML, in my opinion. – Yann LeCun, 2016 .
Astronomers from around the world pointed their powerful telescopes towards a supermassive black hole that lies in the center of the Milky Way (nearly 26,000 light years from Earth) and believe they have snapped the first-ever picture of a black hole
