Unlike previous integral gradient methods, our FAIG aims at finding the most discriminative filters instead of input pixels/features for degradation removal in blind SR networks.
Super-resolution (SR) is a fundamental and representative task of low-level vision area.
Though many attempts have been made in blind super-resolution to restore low-resolution images with unknown and complex degradations, they are still far from addressing general real-world degraded images.
To address the problem, we propose Super-Resolution Generative Adversarial Networks with Ranker (RankSRGAN) to optimize generator in the direction of different perceptual metrics.
This paper serves as a systematic review on recent progress in blind image SR, and proposes a taxonomy to categorize existing methods into three different classes according to their ways of degradation modelling and the data used for solving the SR model.
In this work, we propose a novel learning-based approach using a spatially dynamic encoder-decoder network, HDRUNet, to learn an end-to-end mapping for single image HDR reconstruction with denoising and dequantization.

This paper reports on the NTIRE 2021 challenge on perceptual image quality assessment (IQA), held in conjunction with the New Trends in Image Restoration and Enhancement workshop (NTIRE) workshop at CVPR 2021.
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), or say drones, are envisioned to support extensive applications in next-generation wireless networks in both civil and military fields.
Photo retouching aims at improving the aesthetic visual quality of images that suffer from photographic defects such as poor contrast, over/under exposure, and inharmonious saturation.
On this basis, we propose a new solution pipeline -- ClassSR that combines classification and SR in a unified framework.
However, they encounter two main limitations: (1) Correlations between answers in the same question are often overlooked.
Recent works have shown that learned models can achieve significant performance gains, especially in terms of perceptual quality measures, over traditional methods.
Video super-resolution (VSR) approaches tend to have more components than the image counterparts as they need to exploit the additional temporal dimension.
To answer the questions and promote the development of IQA methods, we contribute a large-scale IQA dataset, called Perceptual Image Processing ALgorithms (PIPAL) dataset.
The base network acts like an MLP that processes each pixel independently and the condition network extracts the global features of the input image to generate a condition vector.
Aside from the contributions to deformable alignment, our formulation inspires a more flexible approach to introduce offset diversity to flow-based alignment, improving its performance.

To the best of our knowledge, this work is the first systematic review on VSR tasks, and it is expected to make a contribution to the development of recent studies in this area and potentially deepen our understanding to the VSR techniques based on deep learning.

Ranked #1 on Image Super-Resolution on PIRM-test
Large deep networks have demonstrated competitive performance in single image super-resolution (SISR), with a huge volume of data involved.
Such a mixture problem is usually solved by a sequential solution (applying each method independently in a fixed order: DM $\to$ DN $\to$ SR), or is simply tackled by an end-to-end network without enough analysis into interactions among tasks, resulting in an undesired performance drop in the final image quality.
In this work, we propose a novel Video Restoration framework with Enhanced Deformable networks, termed EDVR, to address these challenges.
Ranked #1 on Deblurring on REDS
To leverage this, we propose Path-Restore, a multi-path CNN with a pathfinder that can dynamically select an appropriate route for each image region.
In image restoration tasks, like denoising and super resolution, continual modulation of restoration levels is of great importance for real-world applications, but has failed most of existing deep learning based image restoration methods.

We consider the single image super-resolution problem in a more general case that the low-/high-resolution pairs and the down-sampling process are unavailable.
To further enhance the visual quality, we thoroughly study three key components of SRGAN - network architecture, adversarial loss and perceptual loss, and improve each of them to derive an Enhanced SRGAN (ESRGAN).
