—Deep learning methods have recently achieved impressive performance in the area of visual recognition and speech recognition. In this paper, we propose a handwriting recognition method based on relaxation convolutional neural network (R-CNN) and alternately trained relaxation convolutional neural network (ATR-CNN). Previous methods regularize CNN at(More)
Text occlusion is among the most intractable obstacles for OCR engines. A typical example in document images is visible watermark characters, which are often occluded by foreground contents. This paper proposes a solution by restoring watermark characters before recognition. The text restoration process consists a core module as patch-based restoration(More)
