Deep Learning for Image Super-Resolution (Scale Up)

superresolution

Scaling down images is a craft, scaling up images is an art

Since in the scaling down to a lower resolution you typically need to remove pixels, but in the case of scaling up you need to invent new pixels. But some Deep Learning models with Convolutional Neural Networks (and frequently Deconvolutional layers) has shown successful to scale up images, this is called Image Super-Resolution. These models are typically trained by taking high resolution images and reducing them to lower resolution and then train in the opposite way. Partially related: Recommend also checking out Odeon et. al’s Distill.pub’s publication: Deconvolution and Checkerboard Artifacts that goes into more detail about the one the core operators used in Image Super-Resolution.
