Recording of working system: https://smith.zoom.us/rec/share/841_Ne3snhwP3mSduKZu63ctTFzYvdDdCrwsdPvCQWOAFDxka9tsdDTwGGZM3fWw.n5T9sxD24vdlCBzQ Passcode: iZQc4=5s
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
- 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
