During the past few years, writer identification has attracted significant interest due to its real-life applications including document analysis, forensics etc. Machine learning algorithms have played an important role in the development of writer identification systems demonstrating very effective performance results. Recently, the emergence of deep learning has led to various system in computer vision and pattern recognition applications. Therefore, this work aims to assess and compare the performance between one of the deep learning algorithms, AlexNet model, with two of the most effective machine learning classification approaches: Support Vector Machine (SVM) and K-Nearest-Neighbour (KNN). The evaluation has been conducted using both IAM dataset for English handwriting and ICFHR 2012 dataset for Arabic handwriting.
