The present work is part of ongoing effort to improve the performance of Gujarati character recognition. In the recent advancement in kernel methods, the novel concept of multiple kernel learning(MKL) has given improved results for many problems. In this paper, we present novel application ofMKL for Gujarati character recognition. We have applied three different feature representations for symbols obtained after zone wise segmentation of Gujarati text. TheMKLbased classification is proposed, where the MKL is used for learning optimal combination of different features for classification. In addition MKL based classification results for different features is also presented. The multiclass classification is performed in Decision DAG framework. The comparison results in 1-Vs-1 framework and using KNN classifier is also presented. The experiments have shown substantial improvement in earlier results. © Copyright 2010 ACM.
