Abstract: Techniques for improved binarization and extraction of information from digital image data are disclosed in accordance with various embodiments. The inventive concepts include independently binarizing portions of the image data on the basis of individual features, e.g. per connected component, and using multiple different binarization thresholds to obtain the best possible binarization result for each portion of the image data independently binarized. Determining the quality of each binarization result may be based on attempted recognition and/or extraction of information therefrom. Independently binarized portions may be assembled into a contiguous result. In one embodiment, a method includes: identifying a region of interest within a digital image; generating a plurality of binarized images based on the region of interest using different binarization thresholds; and extracting data from some or all of the plurality of binarized images. Corresponding systems and computer program products are also disclosed.

Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer program products for smart, automated capture of textual information using optical sensors of a mobile device, and selective provision of such textual information to a user interface for facilitating performance of downstream workflows are disclosed. The capture and provision is context-aware, and determines context of the optical input, and optionally invokes a contextually-appropriate workflow based thereon. The techniques also provide capability to normalize, correct, and/or validate the captured optical input and provide the corrected, normalized, validated, etc. information to the contextually-appropriate workflow. As a result, the overall process of capturing information from optical input using a mobile device, invoking an appropriate workflow, and providing captured information to the workflow is significantly simplified and improved in terms of accuracy of data transfer/entry, speed and efficiency of workflows, and user experience. Systems, methods, and computer program products for smart, automated capture of textual information using optical sensors of a mobile device, and selective provision of such textual information to a user interface for facilitating performance of downstream workflows are ...more ...less

Abstract: Systems, computer program products, and techniques for detecting and/or reconstructing objects depicted in digital image data within a three-dimensional space are disclosed, according to various exemplary embodiments. The inventive concepts uniquely utilize internal features to accomplish reconstruction, thereby avoiding reliance on reconstructing objects based on information derived from location of edges. The inventive concepts thus provide an improvement over conventional object reconstruction since objects may be detected and/or reconstructed even when edges are obscured or not depicted in the digital image data. In one aspect, reconstructing an object depicted in a digital image includes using a processor to: detect a plurality of identifying features of the object, where the identifying features are located internally with respect to the object; and reconstruct the digital image of the object within a three dimensional coordinate space based at least in part on some or all of the identifying features. Systems, computer program products, and techniques for detecting and/or reconstructing objects depicted in digital image data within a three-dimensional space are disclosed, according to various exemplary embodiments. The inventive concepts uniquely utilize internal features to ...more ...less
