Mobile Image Compression Cuts Bandwidth Use by 98%

New technique for mobile image processing that cuts bandwidth use by 98% unveiled by researches from MIT, Stanford, and Adobe Systems. The new system sends the server a highly compressed image, and the server sends back a smaller file, which contains simple instructions for modifying the original image.

The system was presented at 2015 Siggraph Asia conference. In lab experiments using the new technique, the energy savings were generally between 50 and 85 percent, and the time savings between 50 and 70 percent.
