Fujitsu Achieves 96.7% Recognition Rate for Handwritten Chinese Characters Using AI That …

Hiroshima, Japan, Sept 17, 2015 – (JCN Newswire) – Fujitsu R&D Center Co., Ltd. and Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. (collectively Fujitsu) today announced the development of the world’s first handwriting recognition technology by utilizing AI technology modeled on human brain processes to surpass a human equivalent recognition rate of 96.7%, that was established at a conference.Fujitsu had previously achieved top-level accuracy in this field, as demonstrated by taking first place, with a recognition rate of 94.8%, at a handwritten Chinese character recognition contest(1) held at the International Conference on Document Analysis and Recognition (ICDAR), a top-level conference in the document image processing field. However, in order to further increase recognition accuracy, a new mechanism for studying the diversity of character deformations was required.Now, with a focus on a hierarchical model of…
