Fast learning neural network based on texture for Arabic calligraphy identification

Ahmed Kawther Hussein


Arabic calligraphy is considered a sort of Arabic writing art where letters in Arabic can be written in various curvy or segments styles. The efforts of automating the identification of Arabic calligraphy by using artificial intelligence were less comparing with other languages. Hence, this article proposes using four types of features and a single hidden layer neural network for training on Arabic calligraphy and predicting the type of calligraphy that is used. For neural networks, we compared the case of non-connected input and output layers in extreme learning machine ELM and the case of connected input-output layers in FLN. The prediction accuracy of fast learning machine FLN was superior comparing ELM that showed a variation in the obtained accuracy.
