Bringing Back Hieroglyph
Proceedings of the International Conference on Document Analysis and Recognition, ICDAR
Nowadays, with the evolution of different messaging and texting services, people are able to express their emotion while typing or texting using emoticons. Keeping this fact in mind, in this paper we propose to use graphics to represent different words or object in images. It is similar to hieroglyph used by Egyptians long ago. In the era of tablets, wearable devices and smart phones the sketches are more and more used to retrieve images or words from the personal collection of images. We propose a neural network architecture to mine as much information as possible from the graphics to map it to the relevant images.
