BRUSH (Brown University Stylus Handwriting)

Introduced by Kotani et al. in Generating Handwriting via Decoupled Style Descriptors

The BRUSH dataset (BRown University Stylus Handwriting) contains 27,649 online handwriting samples from a total of 170 writers. Every sequence is labeled with intended characters such that dataset users can identify to which character a point in a sequence corresponds. The dataset was introduced in the paper "Generating Handwriting via Decoupled Style Descriptors" by Atsunobu Kotani, Stefanie Tellex, James Tompkin from Brown University, presented at European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV) 2020.
