The book can be summarized as follows. A new online handwritten database is compiled, and four handwriting recognition systems are developed. Moreover, novel preprocessing and normalization strategies are designed especially for whiteboard notes and a new neural network based recognizer is applied. Commercial recognition systems are included in a multiple classifier system. The experimental results on the test set show a highly significant improvement of the recognition performance to more than 86%.
Contents: Classification Methods; Linguistic Resources and Handwriting Databases; Off-Line Approach; On-Line Approach; Multiple Classifier Combination; Writer-Dependent Recognition.
