Original Abstract

One common approach to construction of highly accurate classifiers for hadwritten digit recognition is fusion of several weaker classifiers into a compound one, which (when meeting some constraints) outperforms all the individual fused classifiers.  This paper studies the possibility of fusing classifiers of different kinds (Self-Organizing Maps, Randomized Trees, and AdaBoost with MB-LBP weak hypotheses) constructed on training sets resampled to different resolutions.  While it is common to select one resolution of the input samples as the ``ideal one'' and fuse classifiers constructed for it, this paper shows that the accuracy of classification can be improved by fusing information from several scales.
