Review — CENet: Enhancing Diversity of Defocus Blur Detectors via Cross-Ensemble Network (Blur Detection)

Ensemble Network With Enhancing Diversity, Outperforms BTBNet & Park CVPR’17 / DHCF


1. Problem Formulation

An Example of Standard Network
Proposed Network

2. Single Detector Network (SENet)

Single Detector Network (SENet)

3. Multi-detector Ensemble Network (MENet)

Multi-detector Ensemble Network (MENet)

Although MENet improves the detection accuracy over SENet, it has limit when the input image has small-scale focused area or large-scale homogeneous regions.

The main reason is that MENet does not effectively encourage these detectors diversity.

4. Proposed Cross-Ensemble Network (CENet)

Proposed Cross-Ensemble Network (CENet)

Each detector is not only negatively correlated with the other detectors of the current group, but also with the ones of the other one group.
