January 2021, Friday

We are experiencing a paradigm shift to learned nonlinear models in signal-image-video processing. There are no theoretical bounds on the performance limits of learned models, it is not possible to tell how much the results can be further improved. In order to fill this gap in the state of the art, this project aims following.
