KuroNet: Pre-Modern Japanese Kuzushiji Character Recognition with Deep Learning [article]

Tarin Clanuwat, Alex Lamb, Asanobu Kitamoto
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Thus there has been a great deal of interest in using Machine Learning to automatically recognize these historical texts and transcribe them into modern Japanese characters.  ...  all characters given a page of text (without any pre-processing).  ...  not Kuzushiji, but closer to modern Japanese characters.  ...

using a deep recurrent sequence model trained with teacher forcing.  ...  This is because sequence in classical Japanese is very different from modern Japanese. Ordering characters into a sequence is important for making the document text easily readable and searchable.  ...  , which is common in pre-modern Japanese documents.  ...

Survey on Deep Learning-based Kuzushiji Recognition [article]

Kazuya Ueki, Tomoka Kojima
2020 arXiv   pre-print
The high-precision detection and recognition of Kuzushiji, a Japanese cursive script used for transcribing historical documents, has been made possible through the use of deep learning.  ...  This study examines recent research trends, current problems, and future prospects in Kuzushiji recognition using deep learning.  ...  Recently, with the advent of deep learning, research on Kuzushiji recognition has accelerated and the accuracy of the methods has significantly improved.  ...

Deep Learning for Historical Document Analysis and Recognition—A Survey

Francesco Lombardi, Simone Marinai
2020 Journal of Imaging  
Nowadays, deep learning methods are employed in a broad range of research fields. The analysis and recognition of historical documents, as we survey in this work, is not an exception.  ...  Guided by these tasks, we go through the different input-output relations that are expected from the used deep learning approaches and therefore we accordingly describe the most used models.  ...  The detection and recognition of Kuzushiji Japanese characters is proposed in Reference [13] .  ...

A Deep Learning approach to Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs Classification

Andrea Barucci, Costanza Cucci, Massimiliano Franci, Marco Loschiavo, Fabrizio Argenti
2021 IEEE Access  
In [9] , [10] , for example, the KuroNet network, based on a Unet architecture, is proposed to recognize the old Kuzushiji Japanese writing style.  ...  Given this complex nature, the hieroglyphic sign proves to be a fertile ground for the application of a deep learning approach for its recognition and classification. B.  ...
