To generate a multi-faceted view, from a single image has always been a challenging problem for decades. Recent developments in technology enable us to tackle this problem effectively. Previously, Several Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) based models have been used to deal with this problem as linear GAN, linear framework, a generator (generally encoder-decoder), followed by the discriminator. Such structures helped to some extent, but are not powerful enough to tackle this problem effectively. 

In this paper, we propose a GAN based dual-architecture model called DUO-GAN. In the proposed model, we add a second pathway in addition to the linear framework of GAN with the aim of better learning of the embedding space. In this model, we propose two learning paths, which compete with each other in a parameter-sharing manner. Furthermore, the proposed two-pathway framework primarily trains multiple sub-models, which combine to give realistic results. The experimental results of DUO-GAN outperform state of the art models in the field.
