Discriminative HMM training with GA for handwritten word recognition


This paper presents a recognition system for isolated handwritten Bangla words, with a fixed lexicon, using a left-right hidden Markov model (HMM). A stochastic search method, namely, genetic algorithm (GA) is used to train the HMM. A new shape based direction encoding features has been developed and introduced in our recognition system. Both non… (More)
