This paper proposes a novel method for offline text-independent writer identification by using convolutional neural network (CNN) and joint Bayesian, which consists of two stages, i.e. feature extraction and writer identification. In the stage of feature extraction, since a large number of data is essential to train an effective CNN model with high generalizability and the amount of handwriting is limited in writer identification, a data augmentation technique is first developed to generate… CONTINUE READING
