In the recent advancement of machine learning methods for realistic image generation and image translation, Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) play a vital role. GAN generates novel samples that look indistinguishable from the real images. The image translation using a generative adversarial network refers to unsupervised learning. In this paper, we translate the thermal images into visible images. Thermal to Visible image translation is challenging due to the non-availability of accurate semantic information and smooth textures. The thermal images contain only single-channel, holding only the images’ luminance with less feature. We develop a new Cyclic Attention-based Generative Adversarial Network for Thermal to Visible Face transformation (TVA-GAN) by incorporating a new attention-based network. We use attention guidance with a recurrent block through an Inception module to reduce the learning space towards the optimum solution.
