A genetic algorithm is presented for the blind-deconvolution problem of image restoration without any a priori information about object image or blurring function. The restoration problem is modeled as an optimization problem, whose cost function is to be minimized based on mechanics of natural selection and natural genetics. The applicability of GA for blind-deconvolution problem was demonstrated.
