This paper provides a sparse learning algorithm for Support Vector Classification (SVC), called Sparse Support Vector Classification (SSVC), which leads to sparse solutions by automatically setting the irrelevant parameters exactly to zero. SSVC adopts the L0-norm regularization term and is trained by an iteratively reweighted learning algorithm. We show(More)
In this paper, a novel document skew detection algorithm based on wavelet decompositions and projection profile analysis is proposed. First, the skewed document images are decomposed by the wavelet transform. The matrix containing the absolute values of the horizontal sub-band coefficients, which preserves the text’s horizontal structure, is then rotated(More)
Deep learning methods have recently achieved impressive performance in the area of visual recognition and speech recognition. In this paper, we propose a handwriting recognition method based on relaxation convolutional neural network (R-CNN) and alternately trained relaxation convolutional neural network (ATR-CNN). Previous methods regularize CNN at(More)
Evaluation of the chemical composition and antihyperglycemic and antioxidant activity of five wild edible mushrooms (Clitocybe maxima, Catathelasma ventricosum, Stropharia rugoso-annulata, Craterellus cornucopioides and Laccaria amethystea) from Southwest China. The chemical composition assay includes proximate analysis (moisture, ash, crude protein, crude(More)
Currently, most electrophotographic printers use halftoning technique to print continuous tone images, so scanned images obtained from such hard copies are usually corrupted by screen like artifacts. In this paper, a new model of scanned halftone image is proposed to consider both printing distortions and halftone patterns. Based on this model, an adaptive(More)
Quality of camera-based whiteboard images is highly related to the light environment and the writing effect of the content. Specular reflection and low contrast reduce the readability of captured whiteboard images frequently. A novel method is proposed to enhance camera-based whiteboard images in this paper. The images are enhanced by removing the highlight(More)
