Abstract

Deep learning has been successfully applied to the single-image super-resolution (SISR) task with great performance in recent years. However, most convolutional neural network based SR models require heavy computation, which limit their real-world applications. In this work, a lightweight SR network, named Adaptive Weighted Super-Resolution Network (AWSRN), is proposed for SISR to address this issue. A novel local fusion block (LFB) is designed in AWSRN for efficient residual learning, which consists of stacked adaptive weighted residual units (AWRU) and a local residual fusion unit (LRFU). Moreover, an adaptive weighted multi-scale (AWMS) module is proposed to make full use of features in reconstruction layer. AWMS consists of several different scale convolutions, and the redundancy scale branch can be removed according to the contribution of adaptive weights in AWMS for lightweight network. The experimental results on the commonly used datasets show that the proposed lightweight AWSRN achieves superior performance on ×2, ×3, ×4, and ×8 scale factors to state-of-the-art methods with similar parameters and computational overhead.

NOTE

  1. About AWSRN-S x3 pretrainmodel

    Unfortunately, the pre-training model of AWSRN-S x3 was accidentally deleted by me during the process, so I retrained the model, which may be slightly different from the results reported in the paper.

  2. Evaluate PSNR and SSIM.

    if you want to evaluate SSIM for each dataset, you need to save images by appending '--save_result' to test commands.

    Then specify the scale and file name in 'Evaluate_PSNR_SSIM.m' . Run 'Evaluate_PSNR_SSIM.m' to obtain PSNR/SSIM values for paper.

    In addition, the PSNR results obtained in Python are the same as in "Evaluate_PSNR_SSIM.m". So you don't need to run this matlab script in order to verify the value of PSNR.Results

Q&A

  1. Q: why have three AWSRN model files in “./src/model” ?

    A: The two files "awsrn.py" and "awsrnd.py" are due to the unclean code styles in my exploration research process. Since the results in the paper are the two model files, they are published. And "awsrnv2.py" is a unified version, you can use this version if you want to retrain all AWSRN models.
