A Compact Deep Learning Model for Khmer Handwritten Text Recognition

Bayram Annanurov, Norliza Mohd Noor

Abstract


The motivation of this study is to develop a compact offline recognition model for Khmer handwritten text that would be successfully applied under limited access to high-performance computational hardware. Such a task aims to ease the ad-hoc digitization of vast handwritten archives in many spheres. Data collected for previous experiments were used in this work. The one-against-all classification was completed with state-of-the-art techniques. A compact deep learning model (2+1CNN), with two convolutional layers and one fully connected layer, was proposed. The recognition rate came out to be within 93-98%. The compact model is performed on par with the state-of-the-art models. It was discovered that computational capacity requirements usually associated with deep learning can be alleviated, therefore allowing applications under limited computational power.
