Removing random-valued impulse noise in images using a neural network detector

2014 Turkish Journal of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences  
This paper proposes a new method using an artificial neural network to remove random-valued impulse noise (RVIN) in images. The inputs of the neural model used to detect the RVIN are formed using basic and related gradient values. The detection of the noisy pixels is realized in 3 phases using the proposed neural detector. In order to obtain a more robust detector, 2 different networks, which are trained with an artificial training image corrupted with high and low clutter densities, are used.
