Talk: Image Dehazing

10:45 - 11:30 AM (IST), December 06, 2020, 5th IAPR International Conference on Computer Vision & Image Processing

An important task in computer vision methodologies is to improve the quality of the image for subsequent analysis. The degradation problem that has drawn attention of researchers recently is degradation when image is captured in the fog or haze environment. The methods developed so far for image dehazing can clearly be categorized into two groups: model driven and data driven. In this presentation, starting from problem definition, we give overview of both the categories. And then describe on method from each category in detail.
