DigiKam Image Quality Sorter Algorithms Improvement

The main idea of IQS in digiKam is to determine the quality of an image and convert it into a score. This score is based on four factors sabotaging image: blur, noise, exposure, and compression. The current approach helps determine whether images are distorted for one of these reasons. However, the current algorithm also presents some drawbacks: It demands lots of fine-tuning from the user’s side and cannot work on the aesthetic image. So, I propose the solution of the deep learning algorithm. While the dataset and the paper for aesthetic image quality assessment are free to use, we are capable of constructing a mathematical model that can learn the pattern of a dataset, hence, predicting the score of quality. As deep learning is an end-to-end solution, it doesn’t require the setting for the hyperparameter. Therefore, we can reduce most of the fine-tuning parts to make this feature easier to use
