Offline handwritten signature verification using various Machine Learning Algorithms
Ramrao Adik Institute of Technology, Nerul, India
In today’s world it is necessary to protect one’s authenticity in order to ensure the protection of personal information that only the authenticate credentials of a person can have access to. Nowadays there is an increase in number of malpractices like signature forgery to access the important information of a person. To encounter signature verification problem, there have been a number of advances in verifying the authenticity of signature using various techniques including Machine Learning and Deep Learning. This paper introduces a novel approach to verify the signatures using difference of gaussian filtering technique, gray level co-occurrence matrix feature extraction technique, principle component analysis and kernel principal component analysis associated with various machine learning algorithms. The publicly available Kaggle offline handwritten signature dataset is used for training. This article compares the accuracy of the dataset on various machine learning algorithms. After training datasets the lowest accuracy achieved is 56.66% for Naive Bayes algorithm. The highest accuracy achieved is 82% for K-Nearest Neighbour (KNN) and 81.66% for Random Forest using principle components and kernel principle components of the dataset.
Key words: Difference of Gaussians (DoG) / GLCM / Principle Component Analysis (PCA) / KPCA / K-Nearest Neighbour(KNN)
