Paper: Experimental Comparison of the Performance of SVMs

The research paper on:

Experimental Comparison of the Performance of SVMs with Different Kernel Functions for Recognizing Arabic Characters

said Ghoniemy, Sayed Fadel, M. Asif


A considerable progress in the recognition of Latin and Chinese characters has been achieved. By contrast, Arabic Optical character Recognition is still lagging. This is because Arabic language is a cursive language, written from right to left, and each character has different forms according to its position in the word. Support vector machines using kernel classifiers represent a typical approach for character recognition. Choosing the most appropriate kernel highly depends on the problem at hand – and fine tuning its parameters can easily become a tedious and cumbersome task. The present study is devoted to an experimental comparison of the performance of SVM machines with different kernel functions for recognizing Arabic Characters. Two groups of kernel functions were used throughout the study, each group contains 7 kernel functions. The obtained results show that, in the radial basis group, Laplacian kernel gives the best results. In the special functions group, the T-Student approach gives the best results. However, combing both kernels did not yield better performance.

Khmer NLP Conference 2016

The upcoming event, Khmer Natural Language Processing Conference (Khmer NLP Conference 2016) calls for paper which is related tot he natural language processing, especially to solve problem of our Khmer language.

As presented in the poster banner, there are a lot of topics that students, professional or private sector should be participating to help together solving our language issue, promoting research and encouraging more people to join solving the problem.

This year beside research papers, you can also present your research or products as poster to exhibit during the conference. Please check official website for detail: http://khmernlp.org
