A new family of symbolic compression algorithms has recently been developed that includes the ongoing JBIG2 standardization effort as well as related commercial products. These techniques are specifically designed for binary document images. They cluster individual blobs in a document and store the sequence of occurrence of blobs and representative blob templates, hence the name symbolic compression. This paper describes a method for duplicate detection on symbolically compressed document
more » ... . It recognizes the text in an image by deciphering the sequence of occurrence of blobs in the compressed representation. We propose a Hidden Markov Model (HMM) method for solving such deciphering problems and suggest applications in multilingual document duplicate detection.
