What is it about?
Humans can quickly learn handwriting imitation with hallucinations, while this task is challenging for machines. Humans can imitate handwriting perhaps because they can learn to disentangle textual contents and calligraphic styles. Inspired by this, we propose HiGAN+ for realistic handwritten text synthesis based on disentangled representations, achieving state-of-the-art performance.

Why is it important?
Although machines can easily recognise humans’ handwriting scripts with recent advanced techniques, it still remains challenging for machines to synthesise realistic handwriting images. Hence, it will step closer to high-level artificial intelligence if we can teach machines/robotics to write texts as realistic as humans.
