A Hybrid Intelligent System for Image Matching, Used as Preprocessing for Signature Verification
A complex, hybrid intelligent system for two dimensional image matching is described, in the context of off-line signature verification. The proposed method can be used as the preprocessing step of a verification process, or it may be employed to determine the measure of similarity for two signatures. The main idea is to apply a nonlinear transformation-commonly used in remote sensing-to the images, in order to reduce their differences, and permit a more exact and reliable comparison.
