Fall 2020

This honors thesis aims to improve current handwriting recognition through refining the use of attention mechanisms in sequence-to-sequence and Transformer models in HTR systems.

Week 1: 09/04 - 09/10

Goals:

- Install PyTorch and get something running
- Find a good starting point
  - Review more literature (particularly for sequence-to-sequence models)
  - Distill knowledge from currently cited papers in proposal
