Abstract: This work describes the development of online handwritten isolated Bengali numerals using Deep Autoencoder (DA) based on Multilayer perceptron (MLP)[1]. Autoencoders capture the class specific information and the deep version uses many hidden layers and a final classification layer to accomplish this. DA based on MLP uses the MLP training approach for its training. Different configurations of the DA are examined to find the best DA classifier. Then an optimization technique have been adopted to reduce the ...
