MIT’s new algorithm for removing reflections from photos taken through windows

It’s hard to take a photo through a window without picking up reflections of the objects behind you. To solve that problem, professional photographers sometimes wrap their camera lenses in dark cloths affixed to windows by tape or suction cups. But that’s not a terribly attractive option for a traveler using a point-and-shoot camera to capture the view from a hotel room or a seat in a train. To solve this problem MIT researchers will present a new algorithm that, in a broad range of cases, can automatically remove reflections from digital photos.
