There are a number of lens distortions that seem like AI technology could fix. For instance coma distortion and astigmatism distortion as well as chromatic aberration. These problems are most easily observed in taking images of stars in the night sky. Coma distortion tends to stretch the image away from the center and produces elongated stars towards the corners. Astigmatism distortion tends to produce stars towards the corners that tend to look like flying seagulls. And of coarse, CA is where the RGB colors don’t converge at the same place.
And where would be the best place to offer such correction? Would it make the most sense to provide a way to perhaps take an image of point sources such as stars and to learn the corrections needed for a given lens and to later, be able to select that correction for that lens to be used on any image?
I can see that the ability to correct lens distortions could allow a mediocre lens to be corrected to the point that it produces results similar to much more expensive lenses.
And of course, to be able to batch this type of correction would be most useful.
It may be possible that these types of corrections with AI may produce results that conventional methods have tried to produce for years and have not succeeded very far?
