Handwriting recognition is such a complex classification problem that it is quite usual now to make co-operate several classification methods at the pre-processing stage or at the classification stage. In this paper, we present an original two stages recognizer. The first stage is a model-based classifier that stores an exhaustive set of character models. The second stage is a discriminative classifier that separates the most ambiguous pairs of classes. This hybrid architecture is based on the… CONTINUE READING
