Abstract Characters in scene image are often hard to detect, i.e., not conspicuous. Thus, one of the main tasks for camera-based character recognition is the detection of characters in scene image. There are many past attempts for this difficult task. This paper investigates the essence of this task, that is, “what is conspicuous character images?” In order to have an example of the conspicuous character image, we use the relation between the subspace of non-character images and that of character images. Specifically, we try to find a point in the character subspace furthest from the non-character subspace.
