Analyzing 50k fonts using deep neural networks

Erik Bernhardsson

Training a neural network. Now, let’s train a neural network that generates characters! I built a simple neural network using Lasagne/Theano – check out the code here. To start with, let’s recreate real font characters with characters generated from the network. These are all characters drawn from the test set , so the network hasn’t seen any of them during training. All we’re telling the network is (a) what font it is (b) what character it is.
