This paper suggests a discriminative approach for wavelet denoising where a set of mapping functions (MFs) are applied to the transform coefficients in an attempt to produce a noise free image. As opposed to the descriptive approaches, modeling image or noise priors is not required here and the MFs are learned directly from an ensemble of example images using least-squares fitting. The suggested scheme generates a novel set of MFs that are essentially different from the traditional soft/hard thresholding in the over-complete case. These MFs are demonstrated to obtain comparable performance to the state-of-the-art denoising approaches. Additionally, this framework enables a seamless customization of the shrinkage operation to a new set of restoration problems that were not addressed previously with shrinkage techniques, such as deblurring, JPEG artifact removal, and various types of additive noise that are not necessarily Gaussian white noise.
