Everyone can be an artist — deep learning for Neural Style Transfer and how to improve it.

In this post, we have revisited the interpretation of Neural Style Transfer as aligning feature distributions in convolutional layers of a neural network. In this regard, existing methods only match first and second order moments. Contrarily, our method can be interpreted alternatively as minimizing an integral probability metric, or as matching all central moments up to a desired order and thus aligning the style distributions more faithfully.
