I would release an application in java that allows an offline recognition of old arabic handwritten using neural networks(PMC, back propagation, activation function sigmoide).
so I have extracted with hand the characters from an old scanned handwritten picture and applicate for each of them the pretraitement step, in result it generates a matrix of 8*8 that gives the percentage of black pixels in the character.
Next I have to release the learning step using neural networks, so I have normalized each the values of each matrix between 0 and 1(to use the sigmoide function) and transforme this matrix for a line vector so that it correnpends like input for the neural network(so now I have a line vector of 64 elements like input data for the neural network).
like output I have the same vector correspending for the good written character of each character.
I save the results(the error of each epoch, and the error activation of the neural output for each input) in a wampserver database for esch character.
Now I would go to the step of recognition, but I have no idea of how starting implementing it using the results of the learning step.
This is not a matter of a few simple lines of code; image and character recognition is more complex. You should do some research (via Google) into both subjects to see some of the algorithms and processes that are commonly used.
Thank you for answring, Yes this is true, and I'm searching in google since months. But as I have understood about what I have read of neural networks documents, the recognition is integrated in the learning step(I don't know if what I have understood is true or false). Do you have websites or links to suggest for me?
Guys I was thinking to learn Spring but have few questions:
--- is it say more difficult to learn than .NET?
I am asking this because I want to evaluate: I learned C# and .NET (desktop side and BCL) very easily because of background in C. So if Spring and .NET are more or less similar in terms of programming style and complexity, I could know that I will be fine also with spring.
Can you please give me some guide in this direction?
What Spring does is to wire the classes up by using a XML file, this way all the objects are instantiated and initialized by Spring and injected in the right places (Servlets, Web Frameworks, Business classes, DAOs, etc, etc, etc...).
Going back to the example in Spring we just need to have a setter for the userLister field and have an XML like this:
What is the good use-case example for Java generics besides collection framework?
It is extremelly hard to create good design using Java generics, mainly because of type erasure and no generic type information at runtime.
I'm pretty new to Java, however it looks like that the only "real-world" purpose for Java generics - is collection framework.
I was curious what are the other good "real-world" examples for generics in Java.
Can anyone give a hint?
- Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
- Most of the problem in your life are due to two reasons: you act without thinking, or think without acting.
