See how a “Computer can copy your handwriting”?

Researchers at University College London have taught a computer to imitate anyone’s handwriting.

They have created an algorithm that first takes a sample of handwritten text,then examines its qualities, and then write any text in the same style.

Tom Haines and his fellow UCL researchers have created a software that they claim reproduces the messy details of any individual writer’s hand.

They call their system My Text In Your Handwriting and have tried it out on samples of handwritten text from historical figures such as Abraham Lincoln and the creator of Sherlock Holmes Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Image 2 was done by computer but the other two were written by a human.

Possible commercial use is in the personal messages that are inserted with flowers or presents sent by delivery firms – how much better to have a “genuine” handwritten “Happy Birthday” than something typed on a card.

You might think that another potential use was by criminals attempting to forge your signature. But the researchers say that close examination with a microscope will still reveal what was written by a real human being and what was machine generated.
