Optical character recognition (OCR) drives the conversion of typed, handwritten, or printed symbols into machine-encoded text. However, the OCR process brings the need to eliminate possible errors, while extracting only valuable data from ever-growing amount of it.

At the recent TensorFlow meetup, the attendees learnt how employing the one-shot attention mechanism for token extraction in Keras using TensorFlow as a back end can help out. In addition, the meetup discussed how to enable multilingual neural machine translation with TensorFlow.

Image and Text Recognition with TensorFlow Using Convolutional Neural Networks

Sophie Turol

tensorflow-dallas-forth-meetup

Convolutional neural networks (CNN) solve a variety of tasks related to image/speach recognition, text analysis, etc. These topics were discussed at a recent Dallas TensorFlow meetup—organized and sponsored by Altoros. The sessions demonstrated how CNN can foster deep learning with TensorFlow in the context of image recognition. The examples featured MNIST, a large data set of handwritten digits, and Word2vec, a group of models used to generate word embeddings.

Watch the videos below for more detail.
