This new AI can make your low resolution photos great again

As you know that the camera technology which is most progressive and highly developed technologies where many of the people are engaged with photography and visual arts, camera, and smartphone. Due to which manufacturers started developing superior devices that could produce more explicit, high-resolution images.

Though, if we talk about beyond these camera and imagery innovations, one cannot deny the attachment he or she has with those old, blurry pictures taken from years ago. So, to avoid the blurry image result, the Max Planck researchers proposed a new approach to give magnified pictures a more realistic texture by using new Artificial Intelligence.

Also using which you can enhance a neural network to upscale the images but unlike other attempts, the system first identifies the type of images, whether it is a portrait or landscape, then it uses a separate network to enhance the image using some of the anomalies of the image type.

A group of scientists at the Max Planck Institute in Germany for Intelligent Systems has used artificial intelligence to create a high-definition version of a low-resolution image where it was also found that when the pixel was perfect then the system produces a better result.

The new Artificial Intelligence system which is called ‘Enhance-Net Process Analytical Technology’ which is most commonly abbreviated as PAT technology and was developed by Mehdi S.M. Sajjadi together with Dr. Michael Hirsch and Prof. Dr. Bernhard Scholkopf, Director of the Empirical Inference Department at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems.

The scientists further emphasized the need to augment the study of ‘Single Image Super-Resolution Technology’ which is most commonly abbreviated as SISR to solve the problem. Obviously, SISR is considered a widely studied tech, but it still produces limited results.

So the technology to create a large-sized image from a low-resolution image is known as Single-Image Super-Resolution (SISR) technology. SISR has been researched for many decades, but this was confined to limited results. The software adds extra pixels but the result is in the form of blurriness. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Intelligent Systems propose a new approach to give images a realistic texture when magnified from small to large using machine learning.

Modern, SISR technology adds extra pixels to enlarge a low-resolution image and fills them with, what the team calls as, the ordinary appearance of all the surrounding pixels. This results in a blurry image version which is pretty disappointing.The technique involves a machine learning system which uses an algorithm that learns from experience in sharpening a picture’s look while upsampling the image.

The learning process of EnhanceNet PAT is much like that of a human. The algorithm is given the task of upsampling millions of low-resolution images to a high-resolution version and is then shown the original.   According to the researchers, the technology is more efficient than any other SISR technology currently on the market.

In a variety of existing algorithms, ‘EnhanceNet-Process Analytical Technology’ does do not attempt a pixel-perfect reconstruction but it points to faithful texture synthesis. By distinguishing and creating patterns in a low-resolution image and applying these patterns in the upsampling process as well. EnhanceNet-PAT adds extra pixels to the low-resolution image accordingly. So after that, the result which is much appreciated is like the original photo.
