 Difference between data and information
 Data Redundancy
 If n1 and n2 denote the number of information-carrying
units in two datasets that represent the same information,
the relative data redundancy RD of the first dataset is
defined as 1
RD  1  ,
CR
n1
where, CR  , is called the compression ratio.
n2

Case1: n2  n1
CR  1 and RD  0  no redundant data
Case 2 : n2  n1
CR   and RD  1  highly redundant data
significant compression
Case 3 : n2  n1
CR  0 and RD    second dataset contains

Coding Redundancy
 Let a discrete random variable rk in [0,1] represent the
graylevels of an image.
 pr(rk) denotes the probability of occurrence of rk.
nk
pr ( rk )  , k  0,1, 2,...L  1
n
 If the number of pixels used to represent each value of rk
is l(rk), then the average number of bits required to
represent each pixel is
L 1

Lavg   l ( rk ) pr ( rk )
k 0
3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 10
 Hence, the total number of bits required to code an MxN
image is MNLavg.
 For representing an image using an m-bit binary code,
Lavg= m.

3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 11


 How to achieve data compression?
 Variable length coding - Assign fewer bits to the more
probable graylevels than to the less probable ones.

 Find Lavg, compression ratio and redundancy.

Interpixel Redundancy
 Related to interpixel correlation within an image.
 The value of a pixel in the image can be reasonably
predicted from the values of its neighbours.
 The gray levels of neighboring pixels are roughly the
same and by knowing gray level value of one of the
neighborhood pixels one has a lot of information about
gray levels of other neighborhood pixels.
 Information carried by individual pixels is relatively
small. These dependencies between values of pixels in the
image are called interpixel redundancy.
3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 15
 Autocorrelation

3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 18
 The autocorrelation coefficients along a single line of
image are computed as
A(n)
 (n) 
A(0)
1 N 1n
where A(n)  
N  n y 0
f ( x, y) f ( x, y  n)

 For the entire image,

 To reduce interpixel redundancy, transform it into an
efficient format.
 Example: The differences between adjacent pixels can be
used to represent the image.
 Transformations that remove interpixel redundancies are
termed as mappings.
 If original image can be reconstructed from the dataset,
these mappings are called reversible mappings.

Psychovisual Redundancy
 Based on human perception
 Associated with real or quantifiable visual information.
 Elimination of psychovisual redundancy results in loss of
quantitative information. This is referred to as
quantization.
 Quantization – mapping of a broad range of input values
to a limited number of output values.
 Results in lossy data compression.

Image Compression Models

3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 29


 Encoder – Source encoder + Channel encoder

 Source encoder – removes coding, interpixel, and


psychovisual redundancies in input image and outputs a
set of symbols.

 Channel encoder – To increase the noise immunity of the


output of source encoder.

 Decoder - Channel decoder + Source decoder

3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 30


 Source Encoder

 Mapper
 Transforms input data into a format designed to reduce
interpixel redundancies in input image.
 Reversible process generally
 May or may not reduce directly the amount of data required
to represent the image.
 Examples
 Run-length coding(directly results in data compression)
 Transform coding

3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 31


 Quantizer
 Reduces the accuracy of the mapper’s output in
accordance with some pre-established fidelity criterion.
 Reduces the psychovisual redundancies of the input
image.
 Irreversible process (irreversible information loss)
 Must be omitted when error-free compression is desired.

3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 32


 Symbol encoder
 Creates a fixed- or variable-length code to represent the
quantizer output and maps the output in accordance with
the code.
 Usually, a variable-length code is used to represent the
mapped and quantized output.
 Assigns the shortest codewords to the most frequently
occuring output values.
 Reduces coding redundancy.
 Reversible process

3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 33


 Source decoder

 Symbol decoder
 Inverse Mapper

 Inverse operations are performed in the reverse order.

3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 34


 Channel Encoder and Decoder

 Essential when the channel is noisy or error-prone.


 Source encoded data – highly sensitive to channel noise.
 Channel encoder reduces the impact of channel noise by
inserting controlled form of redundancy into the source
encoded data.

 Example
 Hamming Code – appends enough bits to the data being
encoded to ensure that two valid codewords differ by a
minimum number of bits.

3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 35


 7-bit Hamming(7,4) Code
 7-bit codewords
 4-bit word
 3 bits of redundancy
 Distance between two valid codewords (the minimum
number of bit changes required to change from one code to
another) is 3.
 All single-bit errors can be detected and corrected.
 Hamming distance between two codewords is the number
of places where the codewords differ.
 Minimum Distance of a code is the minimum number of
bit changes between any two codewords.
 Hamming weight of a codeword is equal to the number of
non-zero elements (1’s) in the codeword.

 Measuring Information
 A random event E occuring with probability P(E) is said
to contain
1
I ( E )  log   log( P( E ))
P( E )
 units of information.
 I(E) is called the self-information of E.
 Amount of self-information of an event E is inversely
related to its probability.

3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 42


 If P(E) = 1, I(E) = 0. That is, there is no uncertainty
associated with the event.
 No information is conveyed because it is certain that the
event will occur.
 If base m logarithm is used, the measurement is in m-ary
units.
 If base is 2, the measurement is in binary units. The unit of
information is called a bit.
 If P(E) = ½, I(E) = -log (½) = 1 bit. That is, 1 bit of
information is conveyed when one of the two possible
equally likely outcomes occur.

The Information Channel
 Information channel is the physical medium that connects
the information source to the user of information.
 Self-information is transferred between an information
source and a user of the information, through the
information channel.
 Information source – Generates a random sequence of
symbols from a finite or countably infinite set of possible
symbols.
 Output of the source is a discrete random variable.

3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 45


 The set of source symbols or letters{a1, a2, …, aJ} is
referred to as the source alphabet A.
 The probability of the event that the source will produce
symbol aj is P(aj).
J

 P(a )  1
j 1
j

z   P(a1 ), P(a2 ),..., P(aJ )


T
 The Jx1 vector is used to
represent the set of all source symbol probabilities.
 The finite ensemble (A,z) describes the information source
completely.

3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 46


 The probability that the discrete source will emit symbol
aj is P(aj).
 Therefore, the self-information generated by the
production of a single source symbol is,

I (a j )   log P( a j )

 If k source symbols are generated, the average self-


information obtained from k outputs is
 kP(a1 ) log P(a1 )  kP(a2 ) log P(a2 )  ...  kP(aJ ) log P(aJ )
J
 k  P(a j ) log P(a j )

3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 47

H(z), is

j 1
J J
1
  P(a j ) log   P(a j ) log P(a j )
j 1 P(a j ) j 1

 This is called the uncertainty or entropy of the source.


 It is the average amount of information (in m-ary units
per symbol) obtained by observing a single source
output.
 If the source symbols are equally probable, the entropy is
maximized and the source provides maximum possible
average information per source symbol.

 A simple information system

 Output of the channel is also a discrete random variable


which takes on values from a finite or countably infinite
set of symbols {b1, b2, …, bK} called the channel alphabet
B.

 The finite ensemble (B,v), where v   P(b1 ), P(b2 ),..., P(bJ )T
describes the channel output completely and thus the
information received by the user.

3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 50


 The probability P(bk) of a given channel output and the
probability distribution of the source z are related as
J
P(bk )   P(bk | a j ) P(a j )
j 1

where P(bk | a j ) is the conditional probability that


the output symbol bk is received , given that the
source symbol a j was generated .

Fundamental Coding Theorems

3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 71


 The Noiseless Coding Theorem or Shannon’s First
Theorem or Shannon’s Source Coding Theorem for
Lossless Data Compression
 When both the information channel and communication
system are error-free
 Defines the minimum average codeword length per source
symbol that can be achieved.
 Aim: to represent source as compact as possible.
 Let the information source (A,z), with statistically
independent source symbols, output an n-tuple of symbols
from source alphabet A. Then, the source output takes on
one of the Jn possible values, denoted by, αi , from
A'  {1 ,  2 ,  3 , ,  J n }

3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 72


Probability of a given  i , P ( i ) is related to single  symbol
probabilities as
P( i )  P(a j1 ) P(a j 2 )... P(a jn )
z '  {P(1 ), P( 2 ),..., P( J n )}
Entropy of the sourceis given by
Jn
H (z ')   P( i ) log P( i )
i 1
Jn
   P(a j1 ) P(a j 2 )... P(a jn )  log  P(a j1 ) P(a j 2 )... P(a jn ) 
i 1

H (z ')  nH (z )

3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 73


 Hence, the entropy of the zero-memory source is n times
the entropy of the corresponding single symbol source.
Such a source is called the nth extension of single-symbol
source.

 Shannon’s source coding theorem for lossless data
compression states that for any code used to represent the
symbols from a source, the minimum number of bits
required to represent the source symbols on an average
must be atleast equal to the entropy of the source.

 The Noisy Coding Theorem or Shannon’s Second
Theorem
 When the channel is noisy or prone to error
 Aim: to encode information so that the communication is
made reliable and the error is minimized.

 Use of repetitive coding scheme


 Encode nth extension of source using K-ary code
sequences of length r, Kr ≤ Jn.
 Select only φ of the Kr possible code sequences as valid
codewords.

3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 77


 A zero-memory information source generates information
at a rate equal to its entropy.
 The nth extension of the source provides information at a
rate of H (z ') information units per symbol.
n

 If the information is coded, the maximum rate of coded


information is log(φ/r) and occurs when the φ valid
codewords used to code the source are equally probable.
 Hence, a code of size φ and block length r is said to have a
rate of 
 R  log
r
 information units per symbol.

3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 78


 The noisy coding theorem thus states that for any R<C,
where C is the capacity of the zero-memory channel with
matrix Q, there exists an integer r, and code of block
length r and rate R such that the probability of a block
decoding error is less than or equal to ε for any ε>0.

 That is, the probability of error can be made arbitrarily


small so long as the coded message rate is less than the
capacity of the channel.

3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 79


 The Source Coding Theorem for Lossy Data
Compression
 When channel is error-free, but communication process is
lossy.
 Aim: information compression
 To determine the smallest rate at which information about
the source can be conveyed to the user.
 To encode the source so that the average distortion is less
than a maximum allowable level D.
 Let the information source and ecoder output be defined
by (A,z) and (B,v) respectively.
 A nonnegative cost function ρ(aj,bk), called distortion
measure, is used to define the penalty associated with
reproducing source output aj with decoder output bk.
3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 80
Average value of distortion is given by
J K
d (Q)    (a j , bk ) P(a j , bk )
j 1 k 1
J K
   (a j , bk ) P(a j )qkj
j 1 k 1

where Q is the channel matrix.


Rate distortion function R ( D ) is defined as
R( D)  min  I (z, v ) 
QQD

where QD  {qkj | d (Q)  D} is the set of all


D  admissible encoding  decoding procedures.
3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 81
 If D = 0, R(D) is less than or equal to the entropy of the
source, or R(0)≤H(z).


R( D)  min  I (z, v)defines the minimum rate at
QQD
which information can be conveyed to user subject to the
constraint that the average distortion be less than or equal
to D. K

 I(z,v) is minimized subject to:qkj  0,  qkj  1, and d (Q )  D


k 1

 d(Q) = D indicates that the minimum information rate


occurs when the maximum possible distortion is allowed.

3/24/2012 CS 04 804B Image Processing Module 3 82


 Shannon’s Source Coding Theorem for Lossy Data
Compression states that for a given source (with all its
statistical properties known) and a given distortion
measure, there is a function, R(D), called the rate-
distortion function such that if D is the tolerable amount
of distortion, then R(D) is the best possible compression
rate.
 The theory of lossy data compression is also known as
rate distortion theory.

 The lossless data compression theory and lossy data


compression theory are collectively known as the source
coding theory.
