Liliya Tazieva, Software Engineer at Synopsys, demonstrates the company’s latest edge AI and vision technologies and products at the 2021 Embedded Vision Summit. Specifically, Tazieva demonstrates SRGAN super resolution on Synopsys’ DesignWare ARC EV7x processors.
Image super resolution techniques reconstruct a higher-resolution image from a lower-resolution one. Although this can be done with classical vision algorithms, the results are inferior to what neural-network-based solutions can now offer. In this demo, Tazieva shows how a Generative Adversarial Network can be used to intelligently infer the missing pixel data and generate a high-quality high-resolution image. The demo runs on the ARC EV7x processor and showcases its deep neural network accelerator engine.
