Detecting and segmenting free-form objects from cluttered backgrounds is a challenging problem in computer vision. Signature detection in document images is one classic example and as of yet no reasonable solutions have been presented. In this paper, we propose a novel multi-scale approach to jointly detecting and segmenting signatures from documents with diverse layouts and complex backgrounds. Rather than focusing on local features that typically have large variations, our approach aims to… CONTINUE READING
