Abstract: Optical character recognition is treated as the classical problem in image processing that can be widely used for application areas related to computer vision. This process is highly dependent on the languages, as well as various formats of information like hand written/printed/sculptured documents as input. The chief operations that can be performed while handling this task are training the system and predicting the characters based on the trained knowledge. Conventionally, classification and regression mechanisms are used for this purpose. Due to the recent advents in technological progress, the same mechanism was served with the help of modern machine learning and deep learning concepts. The main agenda of this paper is to create awareness among the researchers by discussing existing mechanisms related to solve optical character recognition using various machine learning and deep learning concepts.

Keywords: machine learning; deep learning; optical character recognition; pattern recognition; image processing.
