Motion blur retains some information about motion, based on which motion may be recovered from blurred images. This is a difficult problem, as the situations of motion blur can be quite complicated, such as they may be space-variant, nonlinear, and local. This paper addresses a very challenging problem: can we recover motion blindly from a single(More)
Designing effective image priors is of great interest to image super-resolution (SR), which is a severely under-determined problem. An edge smoothness prior is favored since it is able to suppress the jagged edge artifact effectively. However, for soft image edges with gradual intensity transitions, it is generally difficult to obtain analytical forms for(More)
Removing image partial blur is of great practical importance. However, as existing recovery techniques usually assume a one-layer clear image model, they can not characterize the actual generation process of partial blurs. In this paper, a two-layer image model is investigated. Based on the study of partial blur generation process, a novel recovery(More)
In this paper, a novel algorithm for single image super resolution is proposed. Back-projection [1] can minimize the reconstruction error with an efficient iterative procedure. Although it can produce visually appealing result, this method suffers from the chessboard effect and ringing effect, especially along strong edges. The underlining reason is that(More)
Effective image prior is necessary for image super resolution , due to its severely under-determined nature. Although the edge smoothness prior can be effective, it is generally difficult to have analytical forms to evaluate the edge smoothness, especially for soft edges that exhibit gradual intensity transitions. This paper finds the connection between the(More)
Many emerging applications require tracking targets in video. Most existing visual tracking methods do not work well when the target is motion-blurred (especially due to fast motion), because the imperfectness of the target's appearances invalidates the image matching model (or the measurement model) in tracking. This paper presents a novel method to track(More)
We present a novel technique for shadow removal based on an information theoretic approach to intrinsic image analysis. Our key observation is that any illumination change in the scene tends to increase the entropy of observed texture intensities. Similarly, the presence of texture in the scene increases the entropy of the illumination function.(More)
