Review: Liu PCS’19 — Dual Learning-based Video Coding with Inception (HEVC Codec Filtering)
In this story, Dual Learning-based Video Coding with Inception Dense Blocks (Liu PCS’19), by Fudan University and Waseda University, is reviewed. I read this because I work on video coding research. In this paper, two networks are used. One is for intra prediction using fully connected network (FCN). Another one is for in-loop filtering using convolutional neural network (CNN).
- For the FCN, the approach in IPFCN is used. So, it is not described here. (For interested, please read Sections 1 & 2 in IPCNN about the importance of video coding and the conventional HEVC intra coding.)
- For the CNN based filtering, a deeper network using Inception block is proposed.
