Recognition-based Segmentation of On-Line Hand-printed Words

Neural Information Processing Systems

The input strings consist of a timeordered sequenceof XY coordinates, punctuated by pen-lifts. The methods were designed to work in "run-on mode" where there is no constraint on the spacing between characters. While both methods use a neural network recognition engine and a graph-algorithmic post-processor, their approaches to segmentation are quite different. Thefirst method, which we call IN SEC (for input segmentation), usesa combination of heuristics to identify particular penlifts as tentative segmentation points. The second method, which we call OUTSEC (for output segmentation), relies on the empirically trainedrecognition engine for both recognizing characters and identifying relevant segmentation points. 1 INTRODUCTION We address the problem of writer independent recognition of hand-printed words from an 80,OOO-word English dictionary. Several levels of difficulty in the recognition of hand-printed words are illustrated in figure 1. The examples were extracted from our databases (table 1). Except in the cases of boxed or clearly spaced characters, segmenting characters independently of the recognition process yields poor recognition performance.This has motivated us to explore recognition-based segmentation techniques.

Neural Information Processing Systems

H.P. Graf, R. Janow, D. Henderson, and R. Lee AT&T Bell Laboratories, Room 4G320, Holmdel, NJ 07733 Abstract We describe a CMOS neural net chip with a reconfigurable network architecture. Itcontains 32,768 binary, programmable connections arranged in 256 'building block' neurons. Several'building blocks' can be connected to form long neurons with up to 1024 binary connections or to form neurons with analog connections. Single-or multi-layer networks can be implemented withthis chip. We have integrated this chip into a board system together with a digital signal processor and fast memory.
