Just recognizable distortion

Just Recognizable Distortion (JRD) refers to the minimum distortion that notably affects the recognition performance of a machine vision model. If a distortion added to images or videos falls within this JRD threshold, the degradation of the recognition performance will be unnoticeable. Based on this JRD property, it will be useful to Video Coding for Machine (VCM) to minimize the bit rate while maintaining the recognition performance of compressed images.
