# Why do the inception score and the Fréchet inception distance use the inception network and not another network?

So I was researching about the evaluation of GANs and found these two metrics which seem to be the most popular. I understand that the main ideia is to apply the data to a pre-trained network in order to extract abstract features and then later use these higher level features instead of the raw original data. Although, I do not know why the inception network specifically is used and not another network.
