Top Viewed Special Session Paper Award @ ICIP 2020 25.11.2020

Dr. Ionut Schiopu and Professor Adrian Munteanu received the Top Viewed Special Session Paper Award at the 2020 IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP 2020) for their paper “A study of prediction methods based on machine learning techniques for lossless image coding”.
The proposed algorithm is designed to compress high resolution images without any information loss by modifying the conventional framework to employ a deep neural network to replace the traditional prediction method and predict the current pixel based on a large neighboring window.
An outstanding performance gap of almost 50% is achieved compared to traditional lossless codecs, which confirms once again that the Deep-Learning-based tools will play an important role in the design of future lossless image coding standards.”
