Review: CNN for JPEG Compressed Image Deblocking (Codec Post-Processing)
With Deep CNN, Outperforms ARCNN
In this story, a deep convolutional neural network (CNN) for compressed image deblocking, by Fudan University, is briefly reviewed. With the use of CNN, the decoded/reconstructed image can obtain higher PSNR. This is the paper in 2017 ICME. (Sik-Ho Tsang @ Medium)

1. Network Architecture
- The proposed model consists of 20 convolutional layers with taking Rectified Linear Unit as activation function. Each convolutional layer has 32 feature maps and the size of the convolution kernel is 5 × 5.
- Short skip connections and a long skip connection are used as shown above, inspired by ResNet.
After Decoding the JPEG as raw image, the decoded image goes through the proposed network for deblocking to obtain better image quality.
- The proposed network converges after about 2 × 10⁶ backprops.
- However, we can see that AR-CNN and SRCNN both converge after about 4.5 × 10⁸ backprops.
