This paper addresses the use of multi-objective optimization techniques for optimal zoning design in the context of handwritten digit recognition. More precisely, the Non-dominant Sorting Genetic Algorithm II (NSGA II) has been considered for the optimization of Voronoi-based zoning methods. In this case both the number of zones and the zone position and(More)
In this paper is presented a new database for handwritten cursive basic words recognition. The database is devoted to research on bank-check processing. In fact, for security reasons, the banks rarely allow the treatment of checks handled by them. On the other hand, the reasons for the English basic words choice lie in the fact that English language is the(More)
In this paper a new clustering technique for improving off-line handwritten digit recognition is introduced. Clustering design is approached as an optimization problem in which the objective function to be minimized is the cost function associated to the classification, that is here performed by the k-nearest neighbor (k-NN) classifier based on the Sokal(More)
In this paper the use of handwriting artifacts for health investigation is addressed. For the purpose, the paper first presents the Delta-Log and Sigma-Lognormal models to investigate on the handwriting generation processes carried out by the neuromuscular system. Successively, a computational system for handwriting analysis is presented and some(More)
