Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Controlling and evaluating inpainting with attentional models

Abstract (Summary)

At present, there does not exist an accepted quantitative method for inpainting evaluation. Psychophysical experiments show, however, that human opinion can be reliably predicted by computational models of human attention. Furthermore, adopting these psychophysical concepts in the design of inpainting algorithms can improve their output quality and efficiency. Thus, by emphasizing human observation of inpainted imagery rather than fitting purely geometric or physics-based models, it is possible to drastically improve the state-of-the-art in inpainting.
