[visionlist] Challenge on image super-resolution at NTIRE workshop @ CVPR 2017Posted: February 15, 2017
Apologies for multiple copies**********************************Call For Participation:NTIRE: New Trends in Image Restoration and Enhancement Challenge on Example-based Single-Image Super-Resolutionstarted February 14th, 2017 via Codalab platform.http://ift.tt/2kxidDa organizes two parallel challenge tracks on Example-based Single-Image Super-Resolution=Track 1: `bicubic’ downscaling (Matlab imresize) – a commonly employed setup in the literature.
The `bicubic’ setup allows for easy deployment of the recent published super-resolution methods.
=Track 2: `unknown’ downgrading operators – but with available train data of low and high res corresponding images. The `unknown’ setup constrains the participants to work with the provided train data and to develop robust solutions to learn from a limited set of examples.
The challenge aims to gauge the state-of-the-art, to compare and to promote different solutions with the new DIV2K dataset.=DIV2K – a newly collected dataset of DIVerse 2K resolution images (2048x[unspecified] pixel images) will be released with the NTIRE challenge. DIV2K dataset is divided into 80%/10%/10% for train/validation/test, resp.
For each track the low res images are generated and provided to the registered participants for x2, x3, and x4 downscaling factors.
Details about NTIRE challenge and links to its 6 competitions (2 tracks X 3 downscaling factors) can be found at: http://ift.tt/2kxf5HN
