Wavelet-Integrated Deep Networks for Single Image Super-Resolution
AbstractWe propose a scale-invariant deep neural network model based on wavelets for single image super-resolution (SISR). The wavelet approximation images and their corresponding wavelet sub-bands across all predefined scale factors are combined to form a big training data set. Then, mappings are determined between the wavelet sub-band images and their corresponding approximation images. Finally, the gradient clipping process is used to boost the training speed of the algorithm. Furthermore, stationary wavelet transform (SWT) is used instead of a discrete wavelet transform (DWT), due to its up-scaling property. In this way, we can preserve more information about the images. In the proposed model, the high-resolution image is recovered with detailed features, due to redundancy (across the scale) property of wavelets. Experimental results show that the proposed model outperforms state-of-the algorithms in terms of peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR) and structural similarity index measure (SSIM). View Full-Text
