Paul Shearer just sent me the following:
"Dear Igor,I've recently submitted a paper on sparsity-based blind deconvolution that I thought might be of interest to some Nuit Blanche readers. The arXiv link isand a MATLAB implementation (with data reproducing the claimed results) is available on my website:The abstract is below my signature.Cheers,Paul ShearerPhD candidate, Applied MathematicsUniversity of Michigan, Ann Arbor
Thank you Paul !
Correcting Camera Shake by Incremental Sparse Approximation by Paul Shearer, Anna C. Gilbert, Alfred O. Hero III
The problem of deblurring an image when the blur kernel is unknown remains challenging after decades of work. Recently there has been rapid progress on correcting irregular blur patterns caused by camera shake, but there is still much room for improvement. We propose a new blind deconvolution method using incremental sparse edge approximation to recover images blurred by camera shake. We estimate the blur kernel first from only the strongest edges in the image, then gradually refine this estimate by allowing for weaker and weaker edges. Our method matches the benchmark deblurring performance of the state-of-the-art while being significantly faster and easier to generalize.Previous featured papers on Blind Deconvolution can be found here.
