受賞論文「A Nature-Inspired Evolutionary Algorithm Based on Spiral Movements」
Evolutionary algorithms are a class of stochastic optimization techniques that are commonly utilized to address highly complicated optimization tasks. In this paper, we present a nature-inspired evolutionary algorithm which is capable of solving real-valued optimization problems. The novel algorithm employs attraction and mutation. Attraction, based on the observation of spiral movements encountered in nature and the universe, is implemented using a dynamic system model. The proposed operator incorporating with the well-known dynamic mutation works with a population-based technique to iteratively evolve into better and better solutions. To demonstrate its efficiency and accuracy, the proposed algorithm was evaluated on a variety of real-valued benchmark functions. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the attraction operator in exploiting potential solutions as well as exploring search spaces.

受賞論文「An Inverse Halftoning Algorithm Based on Super-Resolution Image Reconstruction」
Inverse halftoning is to reconstruct continuous-tone images from binary ones composed of white and black pixels. This paper presents a simple and useful inverse halftoning method based on the idea of super-resolution image reconstruction. The proposed method is a two-step algorithm. The first step is to generate several grayscale images from the original halftone image and lowpass filters. The next step is to reconstruct a continuous-tone image from the multiple grayscale images by using the super-resolution image reconstruction technique. This method allows us to obtain good continuous-tone images without prior information about halftoning method. The effectiveness of the proposed method is demonstrated by several experiments.
