Image quality assessment(IQA) is of increasing importance for image-based applications. Its purpose is to establish a model that can replace humans for accurately evaluating image quality. According to whether the reference image is complete and available, image quality evaluation can be divided into three categories: full-reference(FR), reduced-reference(RR), and non-reference(NR) image quality assessment. Due to the vigorous development of deep learning and the widespread attention of

This article will review the concepts and metrics of image quality assessment and also video quality assessment, briefly introduce some methods of full-reference and semi-reference image quality assessment, and focus on the non-reference image quality assessment methods based on deep learning. Then introduce the commonly used synthetic database and real-world database. Finally, summarize and present challenges.
