Human can segment a character from handwritten Chinese character text line having many overlaps or joins. Therefore, a fairly high degree of accuracy in the character segment,ation may be attained by imitating the human visual processing. In the cog-nitive science field, it is proposed that the method called 'field of induction on the retina' is similar to… (More)
This paper proposes a system for recognizing numeric strings from topographical maps, which is composed of the automatic recognition stage and the interactive recognition stage. In this method, uncertain numeric strings extracted through the automatic recognition stage based on topo-graphical map feature only, are confirmed and corrected by the interactive… (More)
When noise data is included, the clustering method based on code vectors considering attractive and repulsive force can not precisely classify data. In this paper, we propose the clustering method based on code vectors considering attractive and repulsive force which can precisely classify data even when noise data is included.
An efficient two-stage image search method for the extraction of illegal copies on the Internet has been proposed in our previous paper. In the present paper, we propose a criterial image preparation method for more efficient searching in the pre-search stage. It is possible to accelerate searching without omission because the criterial image preparation… (More)
