Paper Abstract

In an image restoration problem we usually have two different kinds of information. In the first stage, we have knowledge about the structural form of the noise and local characteristics of the image. These noise and image models normally depend on unknown hyperparameters. The hierarchical Bayesian approach adds a second stage by putting a hyperprior on these hyperparameters, through which information about these hyperparameters is included. In this work we relate the hierarchical Bayesian approach to image restoration to an iterative approach for estimating these hyperparameters in a deterministic way.
