Multi-channel Weighted Nuclear Norm Minimization for Real Color Image Denoising

no code implementations ICCV 2017 Jun Xu, Lei Zhang, David Zhang, Xiangchu Feng

Most of the existing denoising algorithms are developed for grayscale images, while it is not a trivial work to extend them for color image denoising because the noise statistics in R, G, B channels can be very different for real noisy images.

Match-SRNN: Modeling the Recursive Matching Structure with Spatial RNN

1 code implementation15 Apr 2016 Shengxian Wan, Yanyan Lan, Jun Xu, Jiafeng Guo, Liang Pang, Xue-Qi Cheng

In this paper, we propose to view the generation of the global interaction between two texts as a recursive process: i. e. the interaction of two texts at each position is a composition of the interactions between their prefixes as well as the word level interaction at the current position.

Patch Group Based Nonlocal Self-Similarity Prior Learning for Image Denoising

no code implementations ICCV 2015 Jun Xu, Lei Zhang, WangMeng Zuo, David Zhang, Xiangchu Feng

PGs are extracted from training images by putting nonlocal similar patches into groups, and a PG based Gaussian Mixture Model (PG-GMM) learning algorithm is developed to learn the NSS prior.

A Deep Architecture for Semantic Matching with Multiple Positional Sentence Representations

1 code implementation26 Nov 2015 Shengxian Wan, Yanyan Lan, Jiafeng Guo, Jun Xu, Liang Pang, Xue-Qi Cheng

Our model has several advantages: (1) By using Bi-LSTM, rich context of the whole sentence is leveraged to capture the contextualized local information in each positional sentence representation; (2) By matching with multiple positional sentence representations, it is flexible to aggregate different important contextualized local information in a sentence to support the matching; (3) Experiments on different tasks such as question answering and sentence completion demonstrate the superiority of our model.
