-Title of Paper: A study on frame rate improvement using hierarchical convolution neural network
-Authors: Sung-Jun Yoon, Yong-Woo Kim, Mun-Churl Kim
In this paper, we propose a frame rate enhancement method using hierarchical convolution neural network. The convolutional neural network is constructed hierarchically, and the convolution operation is performed at the optimal position adaptively, so that the performance is robust against the interpolation of the fast moving object.
As a result, compared with the existing ICCV 2017 "Video Frame Interpolation via Adaptive Separable Convolution" algorithm, the improvement was 0.41dB in terms of peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR)
