Robust off-line signature verification using compression networks and positional cuttings

Publicado en 2003 IEEE XIII Workshop on Neural Networks for Signal Processing

A novel robust technique for the off-line signature verification problem in practical real conditions is presented. The technique is based on the use of compression neural networks, and in the automatic generation of the training set from only one signature for each writer. Our proposal incorporates a new kind of acceptance/rejection rule, which is based on the similarity between subimages or positional cuttings of a test signature and the corresponding representation stored in the class compression network. Experimental results show that the proposed technique reduces significantly the false acceptation rate (FAR).
