Abstract: In this talk, I will present a novel blind image quality assessment (BIQA) algorithm inspired by the sparse representation of natural images in the human visual system (HVS). The hypothesis behind the proposed method is that the properties of natural images that afford their sparse representation are altered in the presence of distortion. The change in sparsity is quantified to show that it is indeed a measure of the unnaturalness or distortion in an image.
