HishabNet: Detection, Localization and Calculation of Handwritten Bengali Mathematical Expressions

by   Md Nafee Al Islam, et al.

Recently, recognition of handwritten Bengali letters and digits have captured a lot of attention among the researchers of the AI community. In this work, we propose a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) based object detection model which can recognize and evaluate handwritten Bengali mathematical expressions. This method is able to detect multiple Bengali digits and operators and locate their positions in the image. With that information, it is able to construct numbers from series of digits and perform mathematical operations on them. For the object detection task, the state-of-the-art YOLOv3 algorithm was utilized. For training and evaluating the model, we have engineered a new dataset 'Hishab' which is the first Bengali handwritten digits dataset intended for object detection. The model achieved an overall validation mean average precision (mAP) of 98.6 backbone CNN used in our model was tested on two publicly available Bengali handwritten digits datasets: NumtaDB and CMATERdb. The backbone CNN achieved a test set accuracy of 99.6252
