Review: IRCNN — Learning Deep CNN Denoiser Prior (Image Denoising & Super Resolution)

Dilated Conv+Batch Norm+Residual Learning+Iterative Optimization, Outperforms SRCNN, VDSR

In this story, Learning Deep CNN Denoiser Prior for Image Restoration (IRCNN), by Harbin Institute of Technology and The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, is briefly reviewed. Actually, there is no short form for the CNN network. But they have the name IRCNN in GitHub. Thus, I just call it IRCNN. I believe IR stands for image restoration. In this paper, iterative optimization is applied for deblurring and super resolution. This is a paper in 2017 CVPR with over 500 citations. (Sik-Ho Tsang @ Medium)
