Objectives: This research presents a model for Urdu Handwritten Character Recognition via images using various Machine Learning and Deep Learning Techniques. The main objective of this research is to provide comparative study on Urdu Handwritten Characters from images dataset. Methods/Statistical analysis: In this research paper, Support Vector Machine (SVM), K-Nearest Neighbor (K-NN) algorithm, Multi-Layer Perceptron (MLP), Concurrent Neural Network (CNN), Recurrent Neural Network (RNN) and Random Forest Algorithm (RF) have been implemented in order to evaluate most suitable technique for Urdu Handwritten Characters Recognition via images. Findings: Ample amount of research work has been carried out on English Language but it is clearly shown through the conducted literature review that very lesser amount of work has been done on Urdu Handwritten Characters Recognition using images. Furthermore, It has been analyzed from this research that CNN models are most efficient compared to RF, SVM and MLP as to produce reliable results in terms of optimal accuracy. Therefore, using the CNN model is a viable choice to recognize Urdu handwritten characters from the images. And proposed study provides significant contribution in automatic learning of Urdu handwritten Characters.
Keywords: Urdu Handwritten Characters; Machine Learning; Deep Learning; Urdu Character Recognition
