Generative Adversarial Nets (GANs) for the Enhancement of Ancient Manusctripts

Status: available Supervisor: Simon Brenner Problem Statement Multispectral Imaging (MSI) has proven a powerful tool to recover degraded texts in historic manuscripts. In this context, the goal of image enhancement methods is to take the raw multispectral images as input and produce and output image with maximal visibility/legibility of a degraded text. Fig. 1 shows … Continue reading Generative Adversarial Nets (GANs) for the Enhancement of Ancient Manusctripts
