Image resolution enhancement using wavelet domain Hidden Markov Tree and coefficient sign estimation

2007-01-01
Image resolution enhancement using wavelets is a relatively new subject and many new algorithms have been proposed recently. These algorithms assume that the low resolution image is the approximation subband of a higher resolution image and attempts to estimate the unknown detail coefficients to reconstruct a high resolution image. A subset of these recent approaches utilized probabilistic models to estimate these unknown coefficients. Particularly, hidden Markov tree (HMT) based methods using Gaussian mixture models have been shown to produce promising results. However, one drawback of these methods is that, as the Gaussian is symmetrical around zero, signs of the coefficients generated using this distribution function are inherently random, adversely affecting the resulting image quality. In this paper, we demonstrate that, sign information is an important element affecting the results and propose a method to estimate signs of these coefficients more accurately.

Image compression method based on learned lifting-based dwt and learned zerotree-like entropy model
Şahin, Uğur Berk; Kamışlı, Fatih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2022-8)
The success of deep learning in computer vision has sparked great interest in investigating deep learning-based algorithms also in many image processing applications, including image compression. The most popular end-to-end learned image compression approaches are based on auto-encoder architectures, where the image is mapped via convolutional neural networks (CNNs) into a transform (latent) representation that is quantized and processed again with CNNs to obtain the reconstructed image. The quantized laten...
DATA-DRIVEN IMAGE CAPTIONING WITH META-CLASS BASED RETRIEVAL
Kilickaya, Mert; Erdem, Erkut; Erdem, Aykut; İKİZLER CİNBİŞ, NAZLI; Çakıcı, Ruket (2014-04-25)
Automatic image captioning, the process cif producing a description for an image, is a very challenging problem which has only recently received interest from the computer vision and natural language processing communities. In this study, we present a novel data-driven image captioning strategy, which, for a given image, finds the most visually similar image in a large dataset of image-caption pairs and transfers its caption as the description of the input image. Our novelty lies in employing a recently' pr...
Camera electronics and image enhancement software for infrared detector arrays
Küçükkömürler, Alper; Akın, Tayfun; Department of Environmental Engineering (2012)
This thesis aims to design and develop camera electronics and image enhancement software for infrared detector arrays. It first discusses the camera electronics suitable for infrared detector arrays, then it concentrates on image enhancement software that are implemented including defective pixel correction, contrast enhancement, noise reduction and pseudo coloring. After that, testing and results of the implemented algorithms were presented. Camera electronics and circuit operation frequency are selected c...
Image fusion for improving spatial resolution of multispectral satellite images
Ünlüsoy, Deniz; Süzen, Mehmet Lütfi; Department of Geological Engineering (2013)
In this study, four different image fusion techniques have been applied to high spectral and low spatial resolution satellite images with high spatial and low spectral resolution images to obtain fused images with increased spatial resolution, while preserving spectral information as much as possible. These techniques are intensity-hue-saturation (IHS) transform, principle component analysis (PCA), Brovey transform (BT), and Wavelet transform (WT) image fusion. Images used in the study belong to Çankırı reg...
