In this paper we propose a fully automated offline handwriting recognition system that incorporates rule based segmentation, contour based feature extraction, neural network validation, a hybrid neural network classifier and a hamming neural network lexicon. The work is based on our earlier promising results in this area using heuristic segmentation and contour based feature extraction. The segmentation is done using many heuristic based set of rules in an iterative manner and finally followed by a neural network validation system. The extraction of feature is performed using both contour and structure based feature extraction algorithm. The classification is performed by a hybrid neural network that incorporates a hybrid combination of evolutionary algorithm and matrix based solution method. Finally a hamming neural network is used as a lexicon. A benchmark dataset from CEDAR has been used for training and testing- Author
In this paper, we describe a novel schema for a more semantic text mining process which results in more comprehensive decision making activity by decision support systems via providing more effective and accurate textual information. The utility of two semantic lexical resources; Frame Net and Word Net, in extracting required text snippets from unstructured free texts yields a better and more accurate information extraction process to deliver more precise information either to a DSS or to a decision maker. We explain how the usage of these lexical resources could elevate a focused text mining process which could be applied to an information provider system in a decision support paradigm. The preliminary results obtained after a starter experiment show that the hybrid information extraction schema performs well on some semantic failure situations.
