Abstract This paper deals with a learning method for digit character recognition. We propose to expand character image databases, by automatically generating deformations, noises and new fonts, and then to use a simple classifier based on k nearest neighbor technique. The results of first experiments show that the classifier is more robust on the resulting larger database. Moreover, performance on the MNIST digit character database is very promising.
