A generative model for handwritings based on enhanced feature desynchronization

Abstract

A new generative model of handwriting patterns is proposed for interpreting their deformations. The model is based on feature desynchronization, which is a coupling process of x and y coordinate features of different timings. By changing the timings to be coupled, the model can generate various deformed patterns from a single pattern. The model is further enhanced by incorporating an adaptive rotation at each timing for increasing the variety of deformed patterns. An important fact is that this enhanced desynchronization model can be interpreted intuitively as a deformation process in actual handwriting. Experimental results showed that the model can generate various handwriting patterns close to actual deformed patterns.
