STRIDE 2015-2016

     Chinese characters are just different combinations of the basic components called radicals, so the first thing I did was find a complete list of Chinese radicals; that way, the program will only have fewer things to recognize. However, because Chinese writing has two forms, traditional and simplified, I downloaded the database of handwritten Chinese characters to be used (CASIA-HWDB) and verified that the characters were simplified. I also read a few articles to get some insight into the different methods of Chinese character recognition.
