Expert regularizers for task specific processing

G. Gilboa, “Expert regularizers for task specific processing”, Scale-Space and Variational Methods, SSVM 2013, LNCS 7893, p. 24-35, 2013


This study is concerned with constructing expert regularizers for specific tasks. We discuss the general problem of what is desired from a regularizer, when one knows the type of images to be processed. The aim is to improve the processing quality and to reduce artifacts created by standard, general-purpose, regularizers, such as total-variation or nonlocal functionals. Fundamental requirements for the theoretic expert regularizer are formulated. A simplistic regularizer is then presented, which approximates in some sense the ideal requirements.
