Image Restoration by Iterative Denoising and Backward ProjectionsMS52

Inverse problems appear in many image processing applications and are usually addressed by designing task-specific algorithms. The recently proposed Plug-and-Play (P&P) framework allows solving general inverse problems by leveraging the impressive capabilities of existing denoising techniques. However, P&P often requires a burdensome parameter tuning. We propose an alternative method for solving inverse problems using denoising algorithms that require less parameter tuning. We demonstrate its competitiveness with task-specific techniques and P&P for image inpainting and deblurring.
