A novel technique for the blind deconvolution of an image from an unknown blurring function is presented. This iterative technique consists of two steps. We first estimate the blurring function and then use this result to estimate the original image. The problem is posed in terms of successive interlinked energy minimizations that are mapped onto two Hopfield neural networks.
