Hand-Written Character Recognition

For this project you will be solving the hand-written character recognition (classification)
problem we discussed in class.
• You will be turning in 3 files (possibly more but will be discussed further below)
1. There should be a Matlab script called “Training Lastname.m” (where Lastname
is replaced by your last name) which will have the optimization code that created
all 45 hyperplanes in the form of a’s and b’s.
2. There should be a Matlab script called “Testing Lastname.m” (where Lastname
is replaced by your last name) which will have the Directed-Acyclic-Graph (DAG)
code and also your analysis on how well your classification performed.
3. There should be a Matlab .mat file called “DAG Lastname.mat” (where Lastname
is replaced by your last name) which will include all a’s and b’s representing the
45 hyperplanes. This .mat file will be used to perform verification analysis to
compare with your own analysis.
• You must save your hyperplanes (a’s and b’s) in the following manner for me to be
able to analyze your classification solution:
1. Store all your a’s in an upper-triangular ”cell” called A (in Matlab you use curly
brackets { } ) … so A{1,10} will store the a vector that represent the hyperplane
between 0 and 9 and A{9,10} represent 8 vs 9.
2. Store all your b’s in an upper-triangular ”cell” called B… so B{1,10} will store
the b scalar that represents 0 vs 9 etc.
3. Here is example code to make the mat-file:
save DAG_Ruben A B
So the cell-array should look something like this:
A
A =
[] ’0 vs 1’ ’0 vs 2’ … ’0 vs 9’
[] [] ’1 vs 2’ … ’1 vs 9’
[] [] [] … ’2 vs 9’
[] [] [] … ’3 vs 9’
[] [] [] … ’4 vs 9’
[] [] [] … ’5 vs 9’
[] [] [] … ’6 vs 9’
[] [] [] … ’7 vs 9’
[] [] [] … ’8 vs 9’

• It is crucial for my ability to analyze your classification that Set1, in the above code,
is the smaller of the two numbers you are comparing. So when finding the hyperplane
between 0 and 9 (or A{1,10} and B{1,10}), Set1 should be zeros and Set2 should be
nines.
• Here is my sample code for checking between zeros and nines in the DAG:
Not9 = find(double(images_test)* A{1,10} – B{1,10}0); % so maybe zero
• Here is the sample code for displaying an image from its 784 long feature vector:
%%%% Load Data
load mnist;
%%%% Plotting a HandWritten Digit
%for ii = 1:10
nHold = 7, % I chose the 7th image to show
IMAGE = reshape(images(nHold,:),28,28)’;
labels(nHold)
figure,imagesc(IMAGE)
colormap(flipud(gray(256)))
axis equal
set(gca, ’YTick’, []);
set(gca, ’XTick’, []);
axis off
• Now that you have finished solving the problem as described above, by solving for
the 45 hyperplanes using the un-altered 784 features, you are now to play with the
problem. When I say “play”, I mean try to alter the problem in the following possible
two ways (at least choose one):
1. Reduce (or change) the features in a logical way so as to maintain the essence
of the image. One example would be to cut the border pixels and reduce the
problem by 2 ∗ 28 + 2 ∗ 26 = 108. Another option would be to do some image
processing on the images (although this may not change the size of the feature
vector). Come up with other options! When reducing the feature size, the gain
in speed will most likely result in a loss of accuracy but by how much?
2. Increase the features in a logical way so as to give more more ways for the hyperplane to compare digits. One example would be to append to the original 784
feature another 784 features that come the original image low passed and another
784 features that come from the original image high passed (image processing
toolbox will have some of these tools) giving a total of 3 ∗ 784 = 2352 features.
This increase in feature size will definitely increase the time needed to solve the
problem but will most likely result in a high accuracy.

• After changing the features in both the training and testing image, and produced new
corresponding a’s and b’s, I need you to save the following items to the .mat file called
“DAG Lastname.mat” you already made (and already saved the A and B cell array):
1. Save your new a’s and b’s in cell arrays name Ap and Bp (where p is for “play”)
2. Save your new, altered, “images test” as “images test play”
• Don’t forget about the report :). Although it only get one bullet in the write-up, it is
a crucial part of this project. Remember that clearly presenting your results to your
peers is an important part of any project. When writing a report or paper, try to ask
yourself if another engineering could recreate your results by reading your paper.
