Now, a new post on Making Star Wars has a theory, informed by rumors from unnamed sources: The Sith troopers, it declares, are part of a previously unknown fleet loyal to Emperor Palpatine that has been hidden in the outer limits of the galaxy for years, returning to deal with an unsuspecting threat posed by … the First Order, of all things.

(The software they used treats the latent space somewhat differently from the way a generative adversarial network treats it, so it is not technically a GAN, though similar.) Their model created artificial data sets as a way of testing hypotheses about physical processes.
