Description

Welcome to Course “Optical Character Recognition (OCR) MasterClass in Python” 

Optical character recognition (OCR) technology is a business solution for automating data extraction from printed or written text from a scanned document or image file and then converting the text into a machine-readable form to be used for data processing like editing or searching.

BENEFITS OF OCR:

  • Reduce costs
  • Accelerate workflows
  • Automate document routing and content processing
  • Centralize and secure data (no fires, break-ins or documents lost in the back vaults)
  • Improve service by ensuring employees have the most up-to-date and accurate information

Some Key Learning Outcomes of this course are:

  • Recognition of text from images using OpenCV and Pytesseract.
  • Learn to work with Image data and manipulate it using Pillow Library in Python.
  • Build Projects like License Plate Detection, Extracting Dates and other important information from images using the concepts discussed in this course.
  • Learn how Machine Learning can be useful in certain OCR problems.
  • This course covers basic fundamentals of Machine Learning required for getting accurate OCR results.
  • Build Machine Learning models with text recognition accuracy of above 90%.
  • You will learn about different image preprocessing techniques such as grayscaling, binarization, erosion, dilation etc… which will help to improve the image quality for better OCR results.
