The ambitious goal of this research is to understand the real distribution of character patterns. Ideally, if we can collect all possible character patterns, we can totally understand how they are distributed in the image space. In addition, we also have the perfect character recognizer because we know the correct class for any character image. Of course, it is practically impossible to collect all those patterns - however, if we collect character patterns massively and analyze how the distribution changes according to the increase of patterns, we will be able to estimate the real distribution asymptotically. For this purpose, we use 822,714 manually ground-truthed 32 × 32 handwritten digit patterns in this paper. The distribution of those patterns are observed by nearest neighbor analysis and network analysis, both of which do not make any approximation (such as low-dimensional representation) and thus do not corrupt the details of the distribution.
