Abstract : This report describes the continuing development of scanning, preprocessing, character-classification, and context-analysis techniques for hand-printed text, such as computer coding sheets in the FORTRAN language. A series of learning-machine classification experiments were performed on a file of hand-printed characters containing 147 FORTRAN alphabets from 49 authors. The best results obtained fell far short of those for analogous experiments, reported earlier, where the training and testing characters were printed by a single author. We describe some early results relating to the problem of manipulating the adaptive weights of the MINOS II learning machine directly and individually from the SDS 910 computer. (Author)
