Compression standards have been used to reduce the cost of image storage and transmission for decades. In recent years, learned image compression methods have been proposed and achieved compelling performance to the traditional standards. However, in these methods, a set of different networks are used for various compression rates, resulting in a high cost in model storage and training. Although some variable-rate approaches have been proposed to reduce the cost by using a single network, most… Expand


Variable Rate Deep Image Compression With a Conditional Autoencoder
The proposed scheme provides a better rate-distortion trade-off than the traditional variable-rate image compression codecs such as JPEG2000 and BPG and shows comparable and sometimes better performance than the state-of-the-art learned image compression models that deploy multiple networks trained for varying rates.

Learned Variable-Rate Image Compression With Residual Divisive Normalization
A variable-rate image compression framework, which employs more Generalized Divisive Normalization (GDN) layers than previous GDN-based methods, and a new objective function is introduced to enable a single model to operate with different bit rates and to learn multi-rates image features. Expand
Full Resolution Image Compression with Recurrent Neural Networks
This is the first neural network architecture that is able to outperform JPEG at image compression across most bitrates on the rate-distortion curve on the Kodak dataset images, with and without the aid of entropy coding. Expand

This paper proposes to embed a set of quality scaling factors (SFs) into learned image compression network, by which it can encode images across an entire bitrate range with a single model, and reduces the complexity significantly for practical implementation. Expand
Learned Image Compression With Discretized Gaussian Mixture Likelihoods and Attention Modules
This paper proposes to use discretized Gaussian Mixture Likelihoods to parameterize the distributions of latent codes, which can achieve a more accurate and flexible entropy model and achieves a state-of-the-art performance against existing learned compression methods. Expand
Variable Rate Image Compression with Recurrent Neural Networks
A general framework for variable-rate image compression and a novel architecture based on convolutional and deconvolutional LSTM recurrent networks are proposed, which provide better visual quality than (headerless) JPEG, JPEG2000 and WebP, with a storage size reduced by 10% or more. Expand
Improved Lossy Image Compression with Priming and Spatially Adaptive Bit Rates for Recurrent Networks
A method for lossy image compression based on recurrent, convolutional neural networks that outperforms BPG, WebP, JPEG2000, and JPEG as measured by MS-SSIM is proposed and it is shown that training with a pixel-wise loss weighted by SSIM increases reconstruction quality according to multiple metrics.

Lossy Image Compression with Compressive Autoencoders
It is shown that minimal changes to the loss are sufficient to train deep autoencoders competitive with JPEG 2000 and outperforming recently proposed approaches based on RNNs, and furthermore computationally efficient thanks to a sub-pixel architecture, which makes it suitable for high-resolution images.

End-to-end Optimized Image Compression
Across an independent set of test images, it is found that the optimized method generally exhibits better rate-distortion performance than the standard JPEG and JPEG 2000 compression methods, and a dramatic improvement in visual quality is observed, supported by objective quality estimates using MS-SSIM.
