This paper proposes a robust single-image super-resolution method for enlarging low quality web image/video degraded by downsampling and compression. To simultaneously improve the resolution and perceptual quality of such web image/video, we bring forward a practical solution which combines adaptive regularization and learning-based super-resolution. The(More)
This paper proposes a novel phase-shifting method for fast, accurate, and unambiguous 3D shape measurement. The basic idea is embedding a speckle-like signal in three sinusoidal fringe patterns to eliminate the phase ambiguity, but without reducing the fringe amplitude or frequency. The absolute depth is then recovered through a robust region-wise voting(More)
We propose a novel dual-camera design to acquire 4D high-speed hyperspectral (HSHS) videos with high spatial and spectral resolution. Our work has two key technical contributions. First, we build a dual-camera system that simultaneously captures a panchromatic video at a high frame rate and a hyperspectral video at a low frame rate, which jointly provide(More)
Coded aperture snapshot spectral imaging (CASSI) provides an efficient mechanism for recovering 3D spectral data from a single 2D measurement. However, since the reconstruction problem is severely underdetermined, the quality of recovered spectral data is usually limited. In this paper we propose a novel dual-camera design to improve the performance of(More)
This paper addresses the super-resolution problem for low quality cartoon videos widely distributed on the web, which are generated by downsampling and compression from the sources. To effectively eliminate the compression artifacts and meanwhile preserve the visually salient primitive components (e.g., edges, ridges and corners), we propose an adaptive(More)
BACKGROUND Tinea capitis is a fungal infection of the scalp occurring commonly in children. Historical data indicate that clinical manifestations and the spectrum of etiologic agents vary greatly with geography, as well as socioeconomic affected populations. OBJECTIVE To study the possible connection between socioeconomic status, the disease patterns and(More)
Tinea capitis remains a common public health problem worldwide especially in developing areas. Aetiologic agents and clinical pattern vary with geography and history of socioeconomic conditions. Three community surveys and a prospective study were carried out over the past 50 years (1965-2014) in the Qingyunpu District of Nanchang, Southern China. Clinical(More)
Example-based super-resolution recovers missing high frequencies in a magnified image by learning the correspondence between co-occurrence examples at two different resolution levels. As high-resolution examples usually contain more details and are of higher dimensionality in comparison with low-resolution ones, the mapping from low-resolution to(More)
This correspondence presents an image compression approach that integrates our proposed parameter-assistant inpainting (PAI) to exploit visual redundancy in color images. In this scheme, we study different distributions of image regions and represent them with a model class. Based on that, an input image at the encoder side is divided into featured and(More)
