Automatic Handwritten Digits Recognition (HDR) is the process of interpreting handwritten digits by machines. There are several approaches for handwritten digits recognition. In this paper we have proposed an appearance feature-based approach which process data using Histogram of Oriented Gradients (HOG). HOG is a very efficient feature descriptor for handwritten digits which is stable on illumination variation because it is a gradient-based descriptor. Moreover, linear SVM has been employed as… Expand
