Recently, image quality assessment (IQA) has achieved remarkable progress with the success of deep learning. However, the strict pre-condition of full-reference (FR) methods has limited its application in real scenarios. And the no-reference (NR) scheme is also inconvenient due to its unsatisfying performance as a result of ignoring the essence of image quality. In this paper, we introduce a brand new scheme, namely externalreference image quality assessment (ER-IQA), by introducing external… Expand

TLDR
This work proposes a self-adaptive hyper network architecture to blind assess image quality in the wild, which outperforms the state-of-the-art methods on challenging authentic image databases but also achieves competing performances on synthetic image databases, though it is not explicitly designed for the synthetic task.

TLDR
A blind image evaluator based on a convolutional neural network (BIECON) is proposed that follows the FR-IQA behavior using the local quality maps as intermediate targets for conventional neural networks, which leads to NR- IQA prediction accuracy that is comparable with that of state-of-the-art FR-iqA methods.
