NTIRE 2023 Challenge on HR Depth From Images of Specular and Transparent Surfaces
This paper reports about the NTIRE 2023 challenge on HR Depth From images of Specular and Transparent surfaces, held in conjunction with the New Trends in Image Restoration and Enhancement workshop (NTIRE) workshop at CVPR 2023. This challenge is held to boost the research on depth estimation, mainly to deal with two of the open issues in the field: high-resolution images and non-Lambertian surfaces characterizing specular and transparent materials. The challenge is divided into two tracks: a stereo track focusing on disparity estimation from rectified pairs and a mono track dealing with single-image depth estimation. The challenge attracted about 100 registered participants for the two tracks. In the final testing stage, 5 participating teams submitted their models and fact sheets, 2 and 3 for the Stereo and Mono tracks, respectively.
