The problem of increasing efficiency of blind image quality assessment is considered. No-reference image quality metrics both independently and as components of complex image processing systems are employed in various application areas where images are the main carriers of information. Meanwhile, existing no-reference metrics have a significant drawback characterized by a low adequacy to image perception by human visual system (HVS). Many well-known no-reference metrics are analyzed in our paper for several image databases. A method of combining several no-reference metrics based on artificial neural networks is proposed based on multi-database verification approach. The effectiveness of the proposed approach is confirmed by extensive experiments.
