We routinely encounter digital color images that were previously compressed using the Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) standard. En route to the image's current representation, the previous JPEG compression's various settings-termed its JPEG compression history (CH)-are often discarded after the JPEG decompression step. Given a JPEG-decompressed(More)
Sometimes image processing units inherit images in raster bitmap format only, so that processing is to be carried without knowledge of past operations that may compromise image quality (e.g., compression). To carry further processing, it is useful to not only know whether the image has been previously JPEG compressed, but to learn what quantization table(More)
To process previously JPEG coded images the knowledge of the quantization table used in compression is sometimes required. This happens for example in JPEG artifact removal and in JPEG re-compression. However, the quantization table might not be known due to various reasons. In this paper, a method is presented for the maximum likelihood estimation (MLE) of(More)
Compound document images contain graphic or textual content along with pictures. They are a very common form of documents, found in magazines, brochures, Web sites, etc. We focus our attention on the mixed raster content (MRC) multilayer approach for compound image compression. We study block thresholding as a means to segment an image for MRC. An attempt(More)
High-level (semantic) image classification can be achieved by analysis of low-level image attributes geared for the particular classes. In this paper, we have proposed a novel application of the known image processing and classification techniques to achieve such a high-level classification of color images. Our image classification algorithm uses three(More)
BACKGROUND Previously, we have demonstrated that short-term treatment of new onset diabetic Non-obese diabetic (NOD) mice, mice that are afflicted with both type 1 (T1D) and type 2 (T2D) diabetes with either Power Mix (PM) regimen or alpha1 antitrypsin (AAT) permanently restores euglycemia, immune tolerance to self-islets and normal insulin signaling.
