Abstract

In this research, we propose a method to identify the cause of misrecognition in offline handwritten character recognition using a convolutional neural network (CNN). In our method, the CNN learns not only character images augmented by applying an image processing method, but also those generated from character models with stroke structures. Using these character models, the proposed method can generate character images which lack one stroke. By learning the augmented character images lacking a stroke, the CNN can identify the presence of each stroke in the characters to be recognized. Subsequently, by adding dense layers to the final layer and learning the character images, obtaining the CNN for the offline handwritten character recognition becomes possible. The obtained CNN has nodes that can represent the presence of the strokes and can identify which strokes are the cause of misrecognition. The effectiveness of the proposed method is confirmed from character recognition experiments targeting 440 types of Japanese characters.
