In this story, Multi-Structure Region Of Interest (MS-ROI), by Brandeis University, is briefly presented. In this paper:

  • A new cnn architecture directed specifically to image compression
  • The CNN generates a map that highlights semantically-salient regions so that they can be encoded at higher quality as compared to background regions.

This is a paper in 2017 DCC. (Sik-Ho Tsang @ Medium)
