Tutorial

Prof. A G Ramakrishnan, IISc, Bangalore, India

Title: Gabor Filters in Image Processing

Duration: 180 minutes.

Intended audience: Academia, college students (senior undergraduate and postgraduate students), industrial research community.

Learning objective: The audience will learn the following from the tutorial:

Basics of Gabor Filters and its application to image processing.

Text extraction from complex images.

Script recognition in multiscript scenarios.

Texture Segmentation

Overview : Gabor formulated a function for both as well as spectral analysis of music signals in 1947. Ever since these functions, called after him as Gabor functions, have extensively been used for signal analysis. These functions, in their 2D form, are used for various kinds of image analysis applications. They are used for texture segmentation, face detection and recognition, text detection and localization in document images, script identification in multi-script scenarios etc. The advantages of Gabor filters over other features are many of which (i) that they simulate the human visual system, (ii) that they are direction dependent, (iii) that they are both localizable in space and frequency, (iv) they meet the equality criteria in the uncertainty principle, are some worth mentioning.

The present tutorial would deal with introduction to the various properties of Gabor filters, various applications, in brief, for image analysis algorithms. We would also give an application specific introduction to extraction of text from complex images and script identification in multiscript scenarios.

Outline :

Brief introduction to Gabor filters

Various properties of Gabor filters

Image texture analysis using Gabor filters

Text extraction: introduction and applications

Script Identification: introduction

Gabor features for text detection and script identification

Discussion and future scope
