This research investigates the effectiveness of a conditional image generator trained on a restricted number of unlabeled images for image-to-image translation in computer vision. While previous research has focused on using labeled data for image labeling in conditional image generation, this study proposes an original framework that utilizes self-supervised classification on generated images. The proposed approach, which combines Conditional GAN and Semantic Clustering, showed promising results. However, this study has several limitations, including a limited dataset and the need for significant computational power to generate a single UI design. Further research is needed to optimize the performance of the proposed approach for real-world applications.
