Evolving better wavelet compression schemes Conference Paper uri icon


  • Wavelet based compression schemes belong to the general class of transform coding schemes. We show how the genetic programming approach can be used to optimize such a compression scheme in the sense of rate-distortion. The results of optimized wavelet based compression scheme are compared with the JPEG compression standard. A prototype implementation of the method is realized as a distributed, parallel implementation on a heterogeneous Unix network.
