Information retrieval based writer identification

A. Bensefia, T. Paquet, L. Heutte
Seventh International Conference on Document Analysis and Recognition, 2003. Proceedings.  
We propose here to exploit the same feature set but using an information retrieval paradigm to describe and compare the handwritten query to each sample of handwriting in the database.  ...  This communication deals with the Writer Identification task. Our previous work has shown the interest of using the graphemes as features for describing the individual properties of Handwriting.  ...  In this communication we have presented an information retrieval based writer identification method.  ...

Handwritten Document Analysis for Automatic Writer Recognition

Ameur Bensefia, Thierry Paquet, Laurent Heutte
2005 ELCVIA Electronic Letters on Computer Vision and Image Analysis  
A textual based Information Retrieval model is used for the writer identification stage. This allows the use of a particular feature space based on feature frequencies.  ...  The approach achieves 95% correct identification on the PSI_DataBase and 86% on the IAM_DataBase. Then writer hypothesis retrieved are analysed during a verification phase.  ...  Information Retrieval Model In this study we formulate the writer identification task within the framework of Information Retrieval.  ...

Re-ranking for Writer Identification and Writer Retrieval [article]

Simon Jordan, Mathias Seuret, Pavel Král, Ladislav Lenc, Jiří Martínek, Barbara Wiermann, Tobias Schwinger, Andreas Maier, Vincent Christlein
2020 arXiv   pre-print
To the best of our knowledge, re-ranking has not been used for writer identification/retrieval.  ...  We show that a re-ranking step based on k-reciprocal nearest neighbor relationships is advantageous for writer identification, even if only a few samples per writer are available.  ...  Related Work Writer Identification Offline text-independent writer identification and retrieval methods can be grouped into codebook-based methods and codebook-free methods.  ...

FragNet: Writer Identification using Deep Fragment Networks

Sheng He, Lambert Schomaker
2020 IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security  
Writer identification based on a small amount of text is a challenging problem.  ...  In this paper, we propose a new benchmark study for writer identification based on word or text block images which approximately contain one word.  ...  Writer identification based on word images is more challenging than writer identification based on page images since the writer-related style information in word images is limited for modeling the writer's  ...
