Xiaomi details DeepExposure, an AI that automatically fixes image exposure and detail | | Digital Photo Help
Chinese company Xiaomi's AI Lab has published a new paper detailing an AI network called "DeepExposure" that improves low-quality images through machine learning. "Comparing with other methods," the researchers explained in their paper, "our algorithm can restore most of the details and styles in original images while enhancing brightness and colors." DeepExposure utilizes generative adversarial networks and asynchronous adversarial learning to split low-quality images into segments called sub-images. The system computes both local and global exposures for these sub-images, then evaluates their quality before blending them with the original image. The end result is an image with improved exposure and detail, opening the door for future solutions that may automatically enhance low-quality photos. It's possible that Xiaomi may one day offer this technology on its smartphones, which already offer other AI capabilities. The researchers point out in their paper, "Due to the
