Machine Learning and Type Design 02: “Typeface Quality Assurance Using Machine Learning”

*This article is created based on a presentation given at ATypI 2019 Tokyo.

There are several research projects to automatically design typeface, using machine learning to develop CJK fonts. In these methods, type designers only design several characters, and all other characters are automatically designed by machine learning. By doing this, the new type design cost can be reduced.

In the present state, characters automatically designed by machine learning are not perfect, and they can only be generated at an accuracy at which correction is required manually. However, the development in this field is astonishing, so an automatic design method that can serve as an immediate asset may appear in the next few years.
