Pixel perfect: Engineers' new approach brings images into focus

March 19, 2024

Johns Hopkins researchers have developed an efficient new method to turn blurry images into clear, sharp ones. "Oftentimes, images are blurry because autofocus doesn't work properly, or the camera or the subject moves. Our method allows you to transform those blurry images into something clear and three-dimensional," said Cheng Peng, a post-doctoral fellow in Johns Hopkins' Artificial Intelligence for Engineering and Medicine Lab. First, the system estimates the positions of the cameras that took the blurry images, which allows it to insert the 2D images into the 3D scene. Next, the system reconstructs a more detailed 3D model of the scene pictured in the images or photos.
