Improving the Enrollment in Dynamic Signature Verification With Synthetic Samples
Source: Universidad Autonoma de Madrid
A novel scheme to generate multiple synthetic samples from a real on-line handwritten signature is proposed. The algorithm models a transmission channel which introduces a certain distortion into the real signature to produce the different synthetic samples. The method is used to increase the amount of data of the clients enrolling on a state-of-the-art HMM-based signature verification system. The enhanced enrollment results in performance improve up to 70% between the case in which only one real sample of the user was available for the training, and the case where the proposed algorithm was used to generate additional synthetic training data.
