  • Publication number: 20220207647
    Abstract: A training method and training system for a resolution improvement model and a boundary detection method using the resolution improvement model are provided. The training method for the resolution improvement model includes the following steps. A low-resolution image is inputted. Pixels of the low-resolution image are captured and reorganized to generate a high-resolution image according to convolutional features. The resolution of the high-resolution image is higher than that of the low-resolution image. When capturing the low-resolution image, a condition mask is used to filter off the noise content, as well as sharpen the edge. The high-resolution image is compared with a ground-truth target image to output a discrimination result. The convolutional features are updated according to the discrimination result.
