Application: Generating iterative inpainting digital images via neural network based perceptual artifact segmentations (Patent ID: US20240046429A1)

The patent filed by ADOBE Inc. discloses methods, systems, and computer-readable storage media for generating neural network-based perceptual artifact segmentations in synthetic digital image content. The system uses neural networks to detect perceptual artifacts in digital images and modifies them accordingly. It involves determining a digital image with synthetically modified portions, utilizing an artifact segmentation machine-learning model to detect perceptual artifacts in these modified portions, and employing an iterative inpainting process to inpaint digital images while detecting perceptual artifacts for additional iterations.

The computer-implemented method and system described in the patent involve utilizing machine-learning models to detect and segment perceptual artifacts in digital images, generating synthetically modified portions based on these detections, and inpainting the images accordingly. The system allows for multiple iterations of inpainting using different digital image inpainting models, selecting the best-modified portions based on artifact ratio metrics, and generating final modified digital images. The method also includes determining artifact ratios, comparing them to threshold values, and generating additional modified portions based on these comparisons. Additionally, the system can determine multiple inpainting iterations and generate final modified images based on artifact ratio metrics.
