Paper Abstract

We show that the standard image compression algorithms are not suitable for compressing images in correlation pattern recognition since they aim at retaining image fidelity in terms of perceptual quality rather than preserving spectrally significant information for pattern recognition. New compression algorithms for pattern recognition are therefore developed, which are based on the modification of the standard compression algorithms to achieve higher compression ratio and simultaneously to enhance pattern recognition performance. This is done by emphasizing middle and high frequency components and discarding low frequency components according to a new developed distortion measure for compression. The operations of denoising, edge enhancement and compression can be integrated in the encoding process in the proposed compression algorithms. Simulation results show the effectiveness of the proposed compression algorithms.
