Blind Image Quality Assessment (Blind IQA) is usually synonymous with “no-reference” IQA, viz., without a pristine image available for quality comparison. However, other sources of information are used to design IQA models: human opinion scores, mathematical models of distortion, perceptual models; statistical models of distorted images, and statistical models of images that are not distorted.
