What does 'kg' mean here?
It's an error in the pirated version of the book The Lucky One probably arising from errors using optical character recognition s on a scan of the book. The word should be leg. It should be easy to see see how le can be recognized as a k using a poor optical character recognition method without proofreading. This is not atypical for unauthorized reproductions. When presenting questions like this always include what book you are reading. It makes it easier to figure out the con. In this case I Google searched your phrase found the pirated form of the book and then located an authoritative copy of the book at Google Books and searched that for a chunk of your presented phrase to find the right phrase. Result The Lucky One s And by the way go buy the damn book. Authors don't write for free.
Does Handwritten Character Recognition use unsupervised learning?
To elaborate on seemingly contradictory answers here. The mostmon and basic approach is to use supervised learning like Hue5kon Hapnes Strand user 8242314 s answer states. This is because you normally need to have some training data that is annotated with the characters to be predicted. If you didn it hard to ex how the system would be able to properly label one character as a and another as b and not vice versa. This is not the only way to do it. You can at the very least use semi-supervised learning where you augment your data with some s containing various English words distributed with their normal frequency you can be sure that the mostmon one would have the word the. This sort of thing makes it possible in principle to cluster images and use a language model to probabilistically label them. Of course in practice this is very hard and unlikely to work all that well unless you have tons of data. But it is an (almost) unsupervised method.
Is there anyway or method to extract words from an image?
OCR (Optical Character Recognition) is a technology that can easily scan and extract the from document images then convert them into editable and searchable files. I have used Docs Matter - document mobile scanner before. My friend rmends it to me. Its main feature is to scan the document you have and use the built-in OCR engine to retrieve from document after scanning. You can modify and save recognition results after the OCR engine finished its work. I think it is useful. Maybe you can go to have a try.
What do Chinese natives do when they see a character they don't know?
Add several ways for Sam Irving user 79258 answer. Sougou Input Method has a very interesting function. When you do not know a character u first because no Chinese start with a u pronounciation then you can all the other fractions you know after that u. Then that input method will tell you what is thatbination pronounciation. eg. You cannot recognize u66cc you can u ri yue kong then you get ordered-list 2. Four-Corner Method - Wikipedia s this is an old-style character retrieve system. A bit moreplicatedpared to other ways the advantage is you do not need to know any information about that character you do not know. 3. You can take a photo of that character if that character is written clearly some APP can help you figure out what is that.
How can l improve my Optical Character Recognition (OCR) predictions with Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) on noisy images?
There are several approaches to improve that first thing is make sure during training you use proper regularization methods such as dropout L_1 math and L_2 math or batch normalization. If you are already doing that then probably the problem is due to The technique you are using to isolate normalize and preprocess the individual characters. There are many methods to do that you can even employee a sliding window approach. Hand engineered features somewhere in the optical character recognition (OCR) system. With that said I am not sure about the detailed implementations of your OCR system whether you are using an off-the-shelf library or you are using your own. Thus with that said here is how I would approach this problem. Use data augmentation to induce deliberate noise in the training examples. This isputationally demanding as the number of training examples will be very large. Use dropout as the regularization method. Dropout helps the network learn robust mapping functions thus if some parts of the image are missing or noisy a network trained with dropout can work but not always. In OCR the preprocessing technique used can act as a bottleneck so make sure to eliminate some of that and use end-to-end systems instead. That is why an architecture I can propose is RPN+classifier the classifier can be either a single convNet or an ensemble of weaker convNets. That architecture can be trained end-to-end with data augmentation. So let the system learn the appropriate mapping by itself try to eliminate hand engineered features if there are any in your system. Dealing with occlusions distortions due to changing camera view points articulated objects and noise has always been a pain forputer vision (CV) algorithms. We need better vision algorithms. Hope this helps.
Which one is the best algorithm for creating an optical character recognition software?
Depends on what kinds of characters you want to recognize and in what written language. The Latin alphabet as used in English is probably easiest because we don't typically use character (accents cedillas umlauts etc) so there are only 52 letter forms and a fewmon punctuation symbols to have to recognize. Adding those accents can confuse the issue but it's still easier than a system like Arabic Hindi or Chinese where characters are made out of sub-characters and therefore every line and dot matters. Printed characters also tend to give you an advantage in that the same character usually looks the same; an 'A' always looks like an 'A' so once you've determined that a blob of pixels is an 'A' that same heuristic can easily find all other 'A's. Deciphering handwriting tends to be trickier because of natural variation from person to person and between characters. The initial step in character analysis is determining where each character is in the . The convex hull can produce a starting point for this; if the hull is a square or rectangle try forms for E H K M N X and Z until you find one whose paths only traverse the darker pixels within the hull. This requires some flexibility and is ultimately a guess and check algorithm along the lines of curve regression analysis; you have to be able to alter the endpoints of your lines and determine as quickly as possible whether any variation of the form will match the image shape. This second strategy is useful for handwriting where variances between instances of the same letter in a document can be pretty wide. In such cases it's often useful to have a primer a sample of multiple instances of each letter written by the user and captured as movements of the pen and analyzed to provide a best-fit shape for each letter in that user's handwriting as well as a ge for how much variation to expect.

How do I extract the text from images in Matlab?
I think you want to detect . I see other answers stating about how to recognise . You can use stroke algorithm as mentioned in one of MATLAB example or if pattern of is similar then use haar cascade algorithm for object detection. E.g. number plate recognition road sign recognition For detecting in natural images is quite difficult. You have to perform operation twice. Dark in light background and vice versa. You have to extract objects using mser or any region growing algorithm. After detecting object apply regionprops on each object. Filter them out based on their shape properties. That's way you can detect . You can mail to jigarmori@ mailtojigarmori@ for any query. I work as freelancer and consultant too. Here's my YouTube channel Projects & Demos Projects & Demos
