On Edge Avoiding Wavelets
This is kind of cool.
A fellow at Hebrew University in Israel, working on a new class of wavelet algorithms wrote asking permission to use an image from one of my tutorials for a paper he wrote. The paper describes some new type of “edge-avoiding wavelets” for image encoding and gives some examples of interesting possibilities for image manipulations using them. Basically, he has reproduced using a computer algorithm what I did somewhat more painstakingly using the GIMP and a couple of hours of my life a few years ago.
Now my education is in computer science, but my area of research was the intersection of programming languages and parallelism, not image processing. I have yet to read the paper, but it looks interesting. I may report back on it here later.
