Build Your Own OCR + Text Detection Application

Tuesday, May 10th, 2022 @ 11am - 1pm ET (8am - 10am PT)

*Limited spots available

OCR (Optical Character Recognition) and Text Detection are a key component in modernizing business workflows across all industries by detecting text from images to extract information into machine readable data.

Get certified in building your own text detection application in this hands-on 2 hour workshop. You will learn how to enhance any application with text detection easily with and AI Blueprints. In this workshop we will cover inference and training examples of text detection and ways it can solve common business problems. When you leave this workshop, you will have built a system that can detect text within images that can be used downstream to a web application. You will also learn how to apply text detection for your own business use case, whether that is translating documents, invoices, nutrition labels, or even detecting text on objects such as license plates. In this workshop you will build a text detection system alongside the instructor, get hands-on support and earn a certificate for building text detection systems.
