Learning to See through Reflections

"Pictures of objects behind a glass are difficult to interpret" "and understand due to the superposition of two real images: a reflection layer and a background layer. Separation of these two layers is challenging due to the ambiguities in as- signing texture patterns and the average color in the input image to one of the two layers. In this paper, we propose a novel method to reconstruct these layers given a single input image by explicitly handling the ambiguities of the re- construction. Our approach combines the ability of neural networks to build image priors on large image regions with an image model that accounts for the brightness ambiguity and saturation. We find that our solution generalizes to real images even in the presence of strong reflections. Extensive quantitative and qualitative experimental evaluations on both real and synthetic data show the benefits of our approach over prior work. Moreover, our proposed neural network is computationally and memory efficient."
