This paper proposes a new algorithm based on multi-scale conditional random fields. This algorithm treats the binarization as a tagging process, using mCRF to label every pixel in the image, so as to realize the binarization of the full image. MCRF of discriminate model can accommodate any of the non-independent features, which makes full use of information in the image. From the result can see this algorithm is better than common threshold method in effect.
