An improved algorithm of digital watermarking based on wavelet transform using learning automata
In this paper, we present an algorithm for embedding digital watermarks in digital images. Embedding is based on block quantization of DWT coefficients. A distinctive feature of this paper is the use of learning automata for the optimal redistribution of energy in blocks of DWT coefficients during the quantization. The obtained algorithm is highly efficient in terms of the quality criteria for embedding and can be used both for embedding digital watermarks and for arbitrary messages.
