Special Issue-Deep Learning Applications in Image Processing



Image processing tasks play an important role in the field of computer vision. With the increase of computing power and data resources, deep learning models are being actively explored in the imaging processing research community to learn abstract concepts and semantic information in images and to accomplish critical operational tasks, such as image classification and object detection, through large-scale training data and end-to-end learning methods. At the same time, deep learning has also led to remarkable progress in the fields of image super-resolution, image inpainting, and image generation to achieve higher quality and richer forms of expression to images. Image processing algorithms based on deep learning not only have accomplished major breakthroughs in academic research but also played an increasingly important role in industrial and practical applications, such as computer vision, autonomous driving, medical image analysis, security monitoring and other fields, bringing many conveniences and innovations to people's life and work.

Even with these notable advancements, image processing methods based on deep learning still face significant challenges and obstacles. First, deep learning models usually require a large amount of labeled data for training, which may be difficult for some specific fields or tasks. Second, the interpretability of deep learning models is poor. Deep learning models usually consist of a large number of parameters and complex structures, making the model's decision-making process difficult to understand and explain. In addition, deep learning models can be unstable for complex situations in images such as noise, occlusion, and deformation. This means that the performance of deep learning models can deteriorate and even produce erroneous yet unexplainable results when dealing with challenging image scenarios. Therefore, it is necessary to further solve the problems of insufficient data annotation, poorinterpretability, and model robustness to promote the development and application of image processing methods based on deep learning.

This special issue will focus on advancements in deep learning for the broad image processing applications including object recognition, image enhancement, visual understanding, etc. It also welcomes manuscripts on machine learning algorithm and system design for image generation, functional imaging, structural imaging, and other related topics on artificial intelligence to showcase the latest technological advancement. We encourage submission of original research in these fields as well as high-quality literature reviews providing new insights.
