Deep Learning for Photo Restoration by Institute of Data Science, NUS

Synopsis:
In recent years, deep learning has emerged as one powerful tool in image processing and computer vision, including image recovery. Image recovery refers to how to recover a high-quality image from a degraded image, a fundamental low-level task with a wide range of applications. Most existing works are based on supervised learning which calls an external image dataset to train a recovery network. In many real scenarios, the instruction of an unbiased and comprehensive image dataset can be a challenging and sometimes impossible task, e.g., medical and scientific imaging. Contradict to popular belief, we will show in this talk that, without seeing any other image data, a deep network still can learn how to recover an image with solid performance. Specifically, this talk will present  a self-supervised image recovery network with state-of-the-art performance, which is built on two concepts: (1) Bernoulli-sampling-based data augmentation and (2) dropout-based training/testing scheme.
