MIT researchers create an algorithm that removes digicam photo reflections


Professional photographers understand the complexities of compensating for errant reflections when shooting a scene through a window. But what about the rest of us who are using arguably less than stellar equipment for the same kinds of shots? MIT researchers are getting ready to present a new algorithm — at the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition conference in June — that can automatically remove such reflections from images shot with a digital camera. The algorithm relies on photos showing two nearly identical, offset reflections. Researcher, YiChang Shih, the first author of the paper, noted that the windows in Boston that he used were double-paned and that they produced…
