  author={Haoyu Ren and Mostafa El-Khamy and Jungwon Lee},
A deep learning approach to blind denoising of images without complete knowledge of the noise statistics is considered. [] Key Method An edge-aware loss function is further utilized in training DN-ResNet, so that the denoising results have better perceptive quality compared to conventional loss function. Next, we introduce the depthwise separable DN-ResNet (DS-DN-ResNet) utilizing the proposed Depthwise Seperable ResBlock (DS-ResBlock) instead of standard ResBlock, which has much less computational cost.
