Calligraphy is an essential part of the Arabic heritage and culture. It has been used in the past for the decoration of houses and mosques. Usually, such calligraphy is designed manually by experts with aesthetic insights. In the past few years, there has been a considerable effort to digitize such type of art by either taking a photograph of decorated buildings or drawing them using digital devices. The latter is considered an online form where the drawing is tracked by recording the apparatus… 



A Neural Representation of Sketch Drawings

We present sketch-rnn, a recurrent neural network (RNN) able to construct stroke-based drawings of common objects. The model is trained on thousands of crude human-drawn images representing hundreds

Automatic Recognition of Artistic Arabic Calligraphy Types

KHATT: An open Arabic offline handwritten text database

Online-KHATT: An Open-Vocabulary Database for Arabic Online-Text Processing

The main objective of this work is to build a comprehensive benchmarking database of online Arabic text and build a dataset for segmented online Arabic characters and ligatures with ground truth labeling and present classification results of Online Arabic characters using DBN-based HMM.

MAYASTROUN: A Multilanguage Handwriting Database

The new dual handwriting database: "MAYASTROUN" is presented, which contains a large lexicon of unconstrained cursive Arabic and Latin texts, words, characters, digits, mathematical expressions and signatures.

CASIA Online and Offline Chinese Handwriting Databases

A pair of online and offline Chinese handwriting databases, containing samples of isolated characters and handwritten texts, are introduced, which can be used for the research of various handwritten document analysis tasks.

A New Computational Method for Arabic Calligraphy Style Representation and Classification

The present work aims to identify Arabic calligraphy style (ACS) from images where text images are captured by different tools from different resources, inspired by the indices used by human experts to distinguish differentcalligraphy styles.

Creative Sketch Generation

This work proposes DoodlerGAN -- a part-based Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) -- to generate unseen compositions of novel part appearances and demonstrates that sketches generated by this approach are more creative and of higher quality than existing approaches.

Deep Learning Autoencoder Approach: Automatic Recognition of Artistic Arabic Calligraphy Types

In this study, a deep learning approach to recognizing artistic Arabic calligraphy types is presented with the capability of reducing data dimensions in addition to extract features through Autoencoder, which could be stacked with several layers.

A deep learning based prediction of arabic manuscripts handwriting style

This study aims to collect Arabic manuscripts images in a dataset and predict their handwriting styles using the most powerful and trending technologies using the MobileNet pre-trained deep learning model to automatically capture and extract the features from them.
