I've been away for a while... Actually, I didn't notice as the time was going on.. even though I felt like I've been running all days since my last article :D .. I was all in a new dimension of machine learning..one that is so huge and with many many possible doors to knock! -What is it that you called "new dimension"? Okay, let me tell you. If you followed my previous post about OpenCV and Tesseract, you may already know that I've been working on a computer vision project, involving Object Character Recognition (OCR) for texts in a natural scene image - By the way, I really like the problem that I'm trying to solve, that's why I accepted working on the project despite the fact that I don't have a previous…

I have recently started working on a Freelance project where I need to use text scene recognition based on OpenCV and Tesseract as libraries. I was so motivated to hit the Wolrd of computer vision combined with machine learning and experience developing applications in the field, so I welcomed challenges that come with! Here I'll be talking about the first challenge and how I tackled it. found myself with multiple new things to prepare in order to start coding, without mentioning that it's been a long time before when I last coded with C++ (back to my university time)! At first, I was asked to use OpenCV 3.0 and Tesseract 3.02 in order to run the project's part which is already available. So I installed OpenCV 3.0 and Tesseract 3.02…

Often, algorithms are considered only when someone is looking for a new job. This tight perception of algorithms use puts us away from what algorithms can allow us to achieve! Actually, algorithms are everywhere! Algorithms are involved in each aspect of computer science! Not only that but also used in a wide range of fields: recommendations, social media, medicine, psychology, transportation and the list is longer still! Anything you do, can be broken down into small steps and that, is an Algorithm. Imagine you wake up the morning to go to work and you can’t remember where are your car keys, how would you find them? One approach might be to apply an algorithm, which is a step by step logical procedure. First, you look for places where you used…

You have certainly heard about that unique thing, which changes your life and makes it magic, beautiful. It can be a person, a situation, a hardship, a moment of discovery.. so called "The Spark"! It all started three or four years ago when I discovered those intelligent features in my Smartphone  "Samsung Galaxy S3": social tag,  smart stay, smart alert and S voice. Many questions were coming to my mind about those features, I was so curious about what's behind their functionalities and how humans succeeded in developing such intelligent technologies! At that time, I was studying computer science engineering and wondering which option modules to take for the last semesters. So, I decided to study "decision making and artificial intelligent (AI) systems" as an option for my last two…
