Image compression is one of the key image processing techniques in signal processing and communication systems. Compression of images leads to reduction of storage space and reduces transmission bandwidth and hence also the cost. Advances in VLSI technology are rapidly changing the technological needs of common man. One of the major technological domains that are directly related to mankind is image compression. Neural networks can be used for image compression. Neural network architectures have proven to be more reliable, robust, and programmable and offer better performance when compared with classical techniques.
