Genetic Algorithm for Weights Assignment in Dissimilarity Function for Trademark Retrieval [chapter]

David Yuk-Ming Chan, Irwin King
1999 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
There are two major problems about the current approaches to trademark image retrieval based on shape features.  ...  Hence, we propose to group di erent shape features together and suggest a t e c hnique to determine a suitable weighting factors for di erent s h a p e features in trademark image retrieval.  ...  The retrieval scheme is based on visually salient feature that dominantly a ects the global shape of the trademark. A two-stage approach for trademark retrieval is proposed by Jain et: al: 10].  ...

Practice and challenges in trademark image retrieval

Jan Schietse, John P. Eakins, Remco C. Veltkamp
2007 Proceedings of the 6th ACM international conference on Image and video retrieval - CIVR '07  
In this paper, we outline some of the main challenges facing trademark searchers today, and discuss the extent to which current automated systems are meeting those challenges.  ...  However, most research to date has concentrated on matching trademarks purely on the basis of shape or other low-level features.  ...  Some researchers have looked at shape features derived from the image as a whole, while others have compared shape features derived from components of segmented images.  ...

A new system for trademark segmentation and retrieval

Jau-Ling Shih, Ling-Hwei Chen
2001 Image and Vision Computing  
Then, based on the rank of the feature distance, a similarity measure is provided to do the similar trademark retrieval.  ...  First, a semi-automatic segmentation method is proposed to extract the shapes of those representative objects, called'masks', in each trademark. Next, some features are selected to describe a mask.  ...  Moreover, these features also have to be insensitive to the shape deformation. In this paper, a composite feature set that is robust for shape deformation will be used for trademark retrieval.  ...
