The paper introduces the idea of non-uniform quantization in the detail components of wavelet transformed image. It argues that most of the coefficients of horizontal, vertical and diagonal components lie near to zeros and the coefficients representing large differences are few at the extreme ends of histogram. Therefore, this paper advocates need for variable step size quantization scheme which preserves the edge information at the edge of histogram and removes redundancy with the minimal…

A Statistical Method for Non-Linear Quantization in Lossy JPEG2000 Compression

Through empirical results, it has been concluded that for low bit rate compression, the quantization error introduced by uniform quantizer is higher than that of non-linear quantizer, and thus suggesting the use ofNon- linear quantizer forLow bit rate lossy compression.

Detecting Adversarial Image Examples in Deep Neural Networks with Adaptive Noise Reduction

This paper proposes a straightforward method for detecting adversarial image examples, which can be directly deployed into unmodified off-the-shelf DNN models and raises the bar for defense-aware attacks.

An Adaptive Statistical Non-uniform Quantizer for Detail Wavelet Components in Lossy JPEG2000 Image Compression

Through the objective and subjective assessments, it is shown that the non-uniform quantizer performs better than the deadzone uniform quantizer in the perceptual quality of the reconstructed image, especially at low bitrates.

An overview of JPEG-2000

This paper describes JPEG-2000 from the point of view of encoding, as it believes it is more amenable to a compact description more easily understood by most readers.

Image quality assessment: from error visibility to structural similarity

A structural similarity index is developed and its promise is demonstrated through a set of intuitive examples, as well as comparison to both subjective ratings and state-of-the-art objective methods on a database of images compressed with JPEG and JPEG2000.

Multisegmentation through wavelets: Comparing the efficacy of Daubechies vs Coiflets

It is found that the performance of Coiflet wavelets is better, as compared to Daubechies wavelet, in the context of the present algorithm.
