Explanation based Handwriting Verification
We propose a method to generate explanations for the confidence provided by convolu-tional neural network (CNN) which maps the input image to 15 annotations (features) provided by experts


Hybrid feature learning - handwriting verification
We propose an effective Hybrid Deep Learning
(HDL) architecture for the task of determining the probability that a questioned handwritten word has been written by a known writer.


Writer Verification using CNN Feature Extraction
We propose an end-to-end learning method based on statistical features extracted on set-of-samples level as a step toward solving the writer verification problem which is about deciding whether two handwriting sources are identical given handwriting samples from the two sources.
