Abstract: Visual repetitions are abundant in our surrounding physical world: small image patches tend to reoccur within a natural image, and across different rescaled versions thereof. Similarly, semantic repetitions appear naturally inside an object class within image datasets, as a result of different views and scales of the same object. We studied deviations from these expected repetitions, and demonstrated how these deviations can be exploited to tackle both low-level and high-level vision tasks. These include blind image reconstruction tasks (e.g. dehazing, deblurring), image classification confidence estimation, and more.
