Dictionary learning sneak peek

Closing in on the goal of integrating J. Mairal’s dictionary learning in the scikit, I stitched together a couple of examples.

The code is not yet integrated according to our standards, but here is the kind of results you can expect.

Here is how a dictionary obtained from 8x8 patches of Lena looks like. Pretty much it looks as expected: gabor-like wavelets with different rotations and shifts, which means things are working!

And here is how it works for denoising Lena. On the left is the noisy image and on the right is the reconstruction from a learned dictionary. The sparse code code producing the result on the right is found using orthogonal matching pursuit.

This is by no means a good denoising example, I have no idea at the moment how to tweak the patch sizes and the model parameters to obtain a better result. This is just a sneak peek and pretty soon you will see better stuff!
