This paper improves the image classification task based on deep learning and proposes a new font grading system to help calligraphy lovers to practice calligraphy. The basic model of the framework proposed in this paper is ResNet, and then dilated convolution, deformable convolutional, and deformable pooling are used on the traditional ResNet to improve performance. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm can make a reasonable judgment on handwriting.
