Iterative scheme-inspired network for impulse noise removal

Minghui Zhang, Yiling Liu, Guanyu Li, Binjie Qin, Qiegen Liu


This paper presents a supervised data-driven algorithm for impulse noise removal via iterative scheme-inspired network (IIN). IIN is defined over a data flow graph, which is derived from the iterative procedures in Alternating Direction Method of Multipliers (ADMM) algorithm for optimizing the L1-guided variational model. In the training phase, the L1-minimization is reformulated into an augmented Lagrangian scheme through adding a new auxiliary variable. In the testing phase, it has computational overhead similar to ADMM but uses optimized parameters learned from the training data for restoration task. Experimental results demonstrate that the newly proposed method can obtain very significantly superior performance than current state-of-the-art variational and dictionary learning-based approaches for salt-and-pepper noise removal.
