  Title Symbol recognition: current advances and perspectives Type Book Chapter
  Year 2002 Publication Graphics Recognition Algorithms And Applications Abbreviated Journal LNCS  
  Volume 2390 Issue Pages (down) 104-128  
  Keywords  
  Abstract The recognition of symbols in graphic documents is an intensive research activity in the community of pattern recognition and document analysis. A key issue in the interpretation of maps, engineering drawings, diagrams, etc. is the recognition of domain dependent symbols according to a symbol database. In this work we first review the most outstanding symbol recognition methods from two different points of view: application domains and pattern recognition methods. In the second part of the paper, open and unaddressed problems involved in symbol recognition are described, analyzing their current state of art and discussing future research challenges. Thus, issues such as symbol representation, matching, segmentation, learning, scalability of recognition methods and performance evaluation are addressed in this work. Finally, we discuss the perspectives of symbol recognition concerning to new paradigms such as user interfaces in handheld computers or document database and WWW indexing by graphical content.

  Title A Bimodal Crowdsourcing Platform for Demographic Historical Manuscripts Type Conference Article
  Year 2014 Publication Digital Access to Textual Cultural Heritage Conference Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages (down) 103-108  
  Keywords  
  Abstract In this paper we present a crowdsourcing web-based application for extracting information from demographic handwritten document images. The proposed application integrates two points of view: the semantic information for demographic research, and the ground-truthing for document analysis research. Concretely, the application has the contents view, where the information is recorded into forms, and the labeling view, with the word labels for evaluating document analysis techniques. The crowdsourcing architecture allows to accelerate the information extraction (many users can work simultaneously), validate the information, and easily provide feedback to the users. We finally show how the proposed application can be extended to other kind of demographic historical manuscripts.

  Title Towards the Alignment of Handwritten Music Scores Type Book Chapter
  Year 2017 Publication International Workshop on Graphics Recognition. GREC 2015.Graphic Recognition. Current Trends and Challenges Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 9657 Issue Pages (down) 103-116  
  Keywords Optical Music Recognition; Handwritten Music Scores; Dynamic Time Warping alignment  
  Abstract It is very common to nd di erent versions of the same music work in archives of Opera Theaters. These di erences correspond to modi cations and annotations from the musicians. From the musicologist point of view, these variations are very interesting and deserve study.
This paper explores the alignment of music scores as a tool for automatically detecting the passages that contain such di erences. Given the diculties in the recognition of handwritten music scores, our goal is to align the music scores and at the same time, avoid the recognition of music elements as much as possible. After removing the sta lines, braces and ties, the bar lines are detected. Then, the bar units are described as a whole using the Blurred Shape Model. The bar units alignment is performed by using Dynamic Time Warping. The analysis of the alignment path is used to detect the variations in the music scores. The method has been evaluated on a subset of the CVC-MUSCIMA dataset, showing encouraging results.

  Title Blue green color categorization in mandarin english speakers Type Journal Article
  Year 2012 Publication Journal of the Optical Society of America A Abbreviated Journal JOSA A  
  Volume 29 Issue 2 Pages (down) A102-A1207  
  Keywords  
  Abstract Observers are faster to detect a target among a set of distracters if the targets and distracters come from different color categories. This cross-boundary advantage seems to be limited to the right visual field, which is consistent with the dominance of the left hemisphere for language processing [Gilbert et al., Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 103, 489 (2006)]. Here we study whether a similar visual field advantage is found in the color identification task in speakers of Mandarin, a language that uses a logographic system. Forty late Mandarin-English bilinguals performed a blue-green color categorization task, in a blocked design, in their first language (L1: Mandarin) or second language (L2: English). Eleven color singletons ranging from blue to green were presented for 160 ms, randomly in the left visual field (LVF) or right visual field (RVF). Color boundary and reaction times (RTs) at the color boundary were estimated in L1 and L2, for both visual fields. We found that the color boundary did not differ between the languages; RTs at the color boundary, however, were on average more than 100 ms shorter in the English compared to the Mandarin sessions, but only when the stimuli were presented in the RVF. The finding may be explained by the script nature of the two languages: Mandarin logographic characters are analyzed visuospatially in the right hemisphere, which conceivably facilitates identification of color presented to the LVF.

  Title Seal detection and recognition: An approach for document indexing Type Conference Article
  Year 2009 Publication 10th International Conference on Document Analysis and Recognition Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages (down) 101–105  
  Keywords  
  Abstract Reliable indexing of documents having seal instances can be achieved by recognizing seal information. This paper presents a novel approach for detecting and classifying such multi-oriented seals in these documents. First, Hough Transform based methods are applied to extract the seal regions in documents. Next, isolated text characters within these regions are detected. Rotation and size invariant features and a support vector machine based classifier have been used to recognize these detected text characters. Next, for each pair of character, we encode their relative spatial organization using their distance and angular position with respect to the centre of the seal, and enter this code into a hash table. Given an input seal, we recognize the individual text characters and compute the code for pair-wise character based on the relative spatial organization. The code obtained from the input seal helps to retrieve model hypothesis from the hash table. The seal model to which we get maximum hypothesis is selected for the recognition of the input seal. The methodology is tested to index seal in rotation and size invariant environment and we obtained encouraging results.

  Title Sequential Word Spotting in Historical Handwritten Documents Type Conference Article
  Year 2014 Publication 11th IAPR International Workshop on Document Analysis and Systems Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages (down) 101 - 105  
  Keywords  
  Abstract In this work we present a handwritten word spotting approach that takes advantage of the a priori known order of appearance of the query words. Given an ordered sequence of query word instances, the proposed approach performs a
sequence alignment with the words in the target collection. Although the alignment is quite sparse, i.e. the number of words in the database is higher than the query set, the improvement in the overall performance is sensitively higher than isolated word spotting. As application dataset, we use a collection of handwritten marriage licenses taking advantage of the ordered
index pages of family names.

  Title The Barcelona Historical Marriage Database and the Baix Llobregat Demographic Database. From Algorithms for Handwriting Recognition to Individual-Level Demographic and Socioeconomic Data Type Journal
  Year 2022 Publication Historical Life Course Studies Abbreviated Journal HLCS  
  Volume 12 Issue Pages (down) 99-132  
  Keywords Individual demographic databases; Computer vision, Record linkage; Social mobility; Inequality; Migration; Word spotting; Handwriting recognition; Local censuses; Marriage Licences  
  Abstract The Barcelona Historical Marriage Database (BHMD) gathers records of the more than 600,000 marriages celebrated in the Diocese of Barcelona and their taxation registered in Barcelona Cathedral's so-called Marriage Licenses Books for the long period 1451–1905 and the BALL Demographic Database brings together the individual information recorded in the population registers, censuses and fiscal censuses of the main municipalities of the county of Baix Llobregat (Barcelona). In this ongoing collection 263,786 individual observations have been assembled, dating from the period between 1828 and 1965 by December 2020. The two databases started as part of different interdisciplinary research projects at the crossroads of Historical Demography and Computer Vision. Their construction uses artificial intelligence and computer vision methods as Handwriting Recognition to reduce the time of execution. However, its current state still requires some human intervention which explains the implemented crowdsourcing and game sourcing experiences. Moreover, knowledge graph techniques have allowed the application of advanced record linkage to link the same individuals and families across time and space. Moreover, we will discuss the main research lines using both databases developed so far in historical demography.

  Title Cutting Sayre's Knot: Reading Scene Text without Segmentation. Application to Utility Meters Type Conference Article
  Year 2018 Publication 13th IAPR International Workshop on Document Analysis Systems Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages (down) 97-102  
  Keywords Robust Reading; End-to-end Systems; CNN; Utility Meters  
  Abstract In this paper we present a segmentation-free system for reading text in natural scenes. A CNN architecture is trained in an end-to-end manner, and is able to directly output readings without any explicit text localization step. In order to validate our proposal, we focus on the specific case of reading utility meters. We present our results in a large dataset of images acquired by different users and devices, so text appears in any location, with different sizes, fonts and lengths, and the images present several distortions such as
dirt, illumination highlights or blur.

  Title Script independent approach for multi-oriented text detection in scene image Type Journal Article
  Year 2017 Publication Neurocomputing Abbreviated Journal NEUCOM  
  Volume 242 Issue Pages (down) 96-112  
  Keywords  
  Abstract Developing a text detection method which is invariant to scripts in natural scene images is a challeng- ing task due to different geometrical structures of various scripts. Besides, multi-oriented of text lines in natural scene images make the problem more challenging. This paper proposes to explore ring radius transform (RRT) for text detection in multi-oriented and multi-script environments. The method finds component regions based on convex hull to generate radius matrices using RRT. It is a fact that RRT pro- vides low radius values for the pixels that are near to edges, constant radius values for the pixels that represent stroke width, and high radius values that represent holes created in background and convex hull because of the regular structures of text components. We apply k -means clustering on the radius matrices to group such spatially coherent regions into individual clusters. Then the proposed method studies the radius values of such cluster components that are close to the centroid and far from the cen- troid to detect text components. Furthermore, we have developed a Bangla dataset (named as ISI-UM dataset) and propose a semi-automatic system for generating its ground truth for text detection of arbi- trary orientations, which can be used by the researchers for text detection and recognition in the future. The ground truth will be released to public. Experimental results on our ISI-UM data and other standard datasets, namely, ICDAR 2013 scene, SVT and MSRA data, show that the proposed method outperforms the existing methods in terms of multi-lingual and multi-oriented text detection ability.
