Super Resolution Lecture
Nowadays, digital images and video are everywhere. Image Processing revolutionizes very many domains, notably:
-Digital Media (video/image/movie) Content Production and Broadcasting, Social Media Analytics,
-Medical/Biological/Dental Imaging and Diagnosis,
-Big Visual Data Analytics,
-Internet and Communications (media broadcasting, streaming).
-Scientific Imaging of any sort, e.g., Remote Sensing, Environment Sensing.
Photoshop and many other image processing tools are ubiquitous.
Furthermore, Image Processing is typically the first step that enables diverse applications, in unison with Computer Vision and Machine Learning:
-Autonomous Systems (cars, drones, vessels) Perception,
-Robotics Perception and Control,
-Intelligent Human-Machine Interaction,
-Smart Cities/Buildings and Assisted living.
This lecture overviews Super Resolution that has many applications in digital imaging, display and printing. It covers the following topics in detail: Multi-Image Super Resolution, MISR in Frequency Domain, Statistical Approach, Single-Image Super Resolution in Spatial Domain (Nearest Neighbor Interpolation, Bilinear Interpolation, Bicubic Interpolation). Deep Learning Super Resolution Methods (Super Resolution GANs, Enhanced GANs, MISR with Residual Attention Network).
