AI system for sogana script
« on: February 25, 2018, 09:25:08 AM »
A couple of Vietnamese lads have won a nationwide competition in Japan for developing an AI system that can read the Sogana script, a historic form of cursive kana that is the parent script of modern day hiragana.

Sogana was derived from an older script known as manyogana which in turn was derived from kanji.  It's one of the stepping stones needed to show that even thought modern kanji and hiragana look completely different they can be traced back to a common ancestry.
