Urdu Handwritten Text Recognition Using ResNet18

Muhammad Kashif

Handwritten text recognition is an active research area in the field of deep learning and artificial intelligence to convert handwritten text into machine-understandable. A lot of work has been done for other languages, especially for English, but work for the Urdu language is very minimal due to the cursive nature of Urdu characters. The need for Urdu HCR systems is increasing because of the advancement of technology. In this paper, we propose a ResNet18 model for handwritten text recognition using Urdu Nastaliq Handwritten Dataset (UNHD) which contains 3,12000 words written by 500 candidates.
