Paper Abstract

Models that predict human performance on narrow classes of visual stimuli abound in the vision science literature. However, the vision and the applied imaging communities need robust general-purpose, rather than narrow, computational human visual system models to evaluate image fidelity and quality and ultimately improve imaging algorithms. Psychophysical measure of image imaging algorithms. Psychophysical measures of image quality are too costly and time consuming to gather to evaluate the impact each algorithm modification might have on image quality.
