Abstract

The objective of this project is to train a model that transforms a tree with its foliage into only its branch structure. This is achieved by employing machine-learning techniques, specifically Generative Adverserial Networks (GANs). By utilizing the proposed method, a predictive model is built that automatically minimizes its own error function through a comparison of a set of input and ground-truth tree images, which are tree images with and without leaves, respectively. The adoption of GANs has shown promising results, both visually and metrically.
