Abstract

A single-frame multichannel blind image deconvolution technique has been formulated recently as a blind source separation problem solved by independent component analysis (ICA). The attractive feature of this approach is that neither origin nor size of the spatially invariant blurring kernel has to be known. To enhance the statistical independence among the hidden variables, we employ multiscale analysis implemented by wavelet packets and use mutual information to locate a subband with the least dependent components, where the basis matrix is learned by means of standard ICA. We show that the proposed algorithm is capable of performing blind deconvolution of nonstationary signals that are not independent and identically distributed processes. The image poses these properties. The algorithm is tested on experimental data and compared with state-of-the-art single-frame blind image deconvolution algorithms. Our good experimental results demonstrate the viability of the proposed concept.
