Old is gold. It has its idiosyncrasies and challenges. I read about 50 recent papers on
page/layout segmentation, regions detection, noise deduction, and neural approaches. If you are interested check out
ICDAR 2017 papers.
. My main focus was layout analysis and page segmentation.
It is a good place to both start and get into the depths of OCR.
Bengali Grammar and Spelling Checker
Tools for automatic grammar and spell checking in Bengali. Researching n-gram and recurrent neural network (RNN)
algorithms. I have developed a fast and efficient algorithm for suggesting correct words in case of
replacement error in words recently. It is faster than edit distance.
Bengali Sign Language Translator
Sign language to text, text to animated sign language for Bengali language. Prediction of hand skeleton from static image,
combining outcome of multiple images to predict movement of hand, make system adaptive to different camera view, train the data
collected from hand movement and predict the gesture. We have used Support Vector Machine for the android implementation, and
Convolutional Neural Network for python-based desktop implementation.
My next challenge is to research and improve dynamic gesture recognition.
Bengali Unicode to IPA font transcription
Currently developing a rule-based algorithm to automatically transcribe Bengali text to IPA phonetics
language for voice synthesizers.
We will work on contextual variations of Bengali pronunciation next.
Language Training Application
Developed real time communication models for the virtual class-room.
It has been recognized as the best project of the ICT ministry of 2017 and will be used to
train millions of people in Bangladesh.
