We’ve all seen fictional examples of increasing the resolution of images to reveal previously unseen detail, here is a reminder:
Unfortunately, all of these examples are basically impossible, because they imply revealing information in the image that simply isn’t there.
Turns out that there is a way to do exactly this, described by this paper: Scene Completion Using Millions of Photographs.
So, anyone want to try applying this approach to “filling in” the missing pixels in an image that has been scaled up? The results would be really interesting.
