An Intelligent System for Chinese Calligraphy
Our work links Chinese calligraphy to computer science through an integrated intelligence approach. We first extract strokes of existent calligraphy using a semi-automatic, twophase mechanism: the first phase tries to do the best possible extraction using a combination of algorithmic techniques; the second phase presents an intelligent user interface to allow the user to provide input to the extraction process for the difficult cases such as those in highly random, cursive, or distorted styles. Having derived a parametric representation of calligraphy, we employ a supervised learning based method to explore the space of visually pleasing calligraphy. A numeric grading method for judging the beauty of calligraphy is then applied to the space. We integrate such a grading unit into an existent constraint-based reasoning system for calligraphy generation, which results in a significant enhancement in terms of visual quality in the automatically generated calligraphic characters.
