Conditional Sampling With Monotone GANs


We present a new approach for sampling conditional measures that enables uncertainty quantification in supervised learning tasks. We construct a mapping that transforms a reference measure to the probability measure of the output conditioned on new inputs. The mapping is trained via a modification of generative adversarial networks (GANs), called monotone GANs, that imposes monotonicity constraints and a block triangular structure. We present theoretical results, in an idealized setting, that support our proposed method as well as numerical experiments demonstrating the ability of our method to sample the correct conditional measures in applications ranging from inverse problems to image in-painting.
