Semantic Single-Image Dehazing

  title={Semantic Single-Image Dehazing},
  author={Ziang Cheng and Shaodi You and Viorela Ila and Hongdong Li},
Single-image haze-removal is challenging due to limited information contained in one single image. Previous solutions largely rely on handcrafted priors to compensate for this deficiency. Recent convolutional neural network (CNN) models have been used to learn haze-related priors but they ultimately work as advanced image filters. In this paper we propose a novel semantic ap- proach towards single image haze removal. Unlike existing methods, we infer color priors based on extracted semantic…
