Face hallucination VIA sparse coding

Face hallucination VIA sparse coding
In this paper, we address the problem of hallucinating a high resolution face given a low resolution input face. The problem is approached through sparse coding. To exploit the facial structure, Non-negative Matrix Factorization (NMF) [1] is first employed to learn a localized part-based subspace. This subspace is effective for super-resolving the incoming low resolution face under reconstruction constraints. To further enhance the detailed facial information, we propose a local patch method based on sparse representation with respect to coupled overcomplete patch dictionaries, which can be fast solved through linear programming. Experiments demonstrate that our approach can hallucinate high quality super-resolution faces.
