Abstract : Experiments on the training and testing of three trainable classifiers--the linear, piecewise-linear, and condensed nearest-neighbor classifiers--on a set of miltifon machine-printed characters have been carried out. The forced-decision (zero rejects) performance of these three classifiers has been determined. In addition, the characters that have been misclassified and the frequencies of misclassification were obtained. (Author)
