Abstract: In this paper, writer identification is performed with three models, namely, HMMBW, HMMMLP and HMMCNN. The features are extracted from the HMM and are classified using Baum Welch algorithm (BW), Multi layer perceptron (MLP) model and Convolutional neural network (CNN) model. A dataset, namely, VTU-WRITER dataset is created for the experiential purpose and the performance of the models were tested. The test train ratio was varied to derive its relation to accuracy. Also the number of states was varied to determine the optimum number of states to be considered in the HMM model. Finally the performance of all the three models is compared.
