|Abstract:||Document Image Binarization techniques have been studied for many years, and many practical binarization techniques have been developed and applied successfully on commercial document analysis systems. However, the current state-of-the-art methods, fail to produce good binarization results for many badly degraded document images. In this paper, we propose a self-training learning framework for document image binarization. Based on reported binarization methods, the proposed framework first divides document image pixels into three categories, namely, foreground pixels, background pixels and uncertain pixels. A classifier is then trained by learning from the document image pixels in the foreground and background categories. Finally, the uncertain pixels are classified using the learned pixel classifier. Extensive experiments have been conducted over the dataset that is used in the recent Document Image Binarization Contest(DIBCO) 2009. Experimental results show that our proposed framework significantly improves the performance of reported document image binarization methods. © 2010 IEEE.|
