Abstract: With the emergence of the touchpad devices and drawing tablets, a new era of sketching started afresh. However, the recognition of sketches is still a tough task due to the variability of the drawing styles. Moreover, in some application scenarios there is few labelled data available for training,
which imposes a limitation for deep learning architectures. In addition, in many cases there is a need to generate models able to adapt to new classes. In order to cope with these limitations, we propose a method based on few-shot learning and graph neural networks for classifying sketches aiming for an efficient neural model. We test our approach with several databases of
sketches, showing promising results.
