And the most important part is "artificially" degraded images.

That's not the way digital images usually fail, especially Jpegs.  Each byte depends on the one before while it's being read, and one bad byte can and usually does make the all the following bytes undecipherable if they are readable at all, the bad byte is almost always a result of a failed copy operation or a damaged sector in the storage medium.  This seems, and since the algorithm isn't published, I can't look at it, to know for sure, so I'm only guessing,  to analyze the image as a whole and decides what should be resharpened etc.  This won't help with a bad copy.

I will however be very good to at removing Instagram filters, so one may admire them in all their crappy glory.

The article says nothing about saving a photographer's sorry ass. It's only about restoring artificially degraded images. And it's not perfect even for that.

"The research team, which included members from the University of Bern in Switzerland, tested their algorithm by taking high-quality, uncorrupted images, purposely introducing severe degradations, then using the algorithm to repair the damage. In many cases, the algorithm outperformed competitors’ techniques, very nearly returning the images to their original state."
