4 March 1996 Block distortion assessment for image compression through ANNs
Author Affiliations +
In this paper we propose a new method of image quality assessment for the evaluation of the block distortion through artificial neural networks (ANNs). The approach is new and intends to address the problem of the assessment of the visual quality of compressed images from an original point of view. ANNs in particular are applied in order to detect the presence of blocking errors inside pre-processed pictures. To this purpose, a new local blocking distortion parameter is introduced. Experiments and simulations, even if very preliminary, have confirmed the interest of the proposed approach. A complete formalization of the problem also is presented.
