The Machine Learning Blog
I am a biologist and from my precarious corner of knowledge, but thanks to the close relationship with professionals from multiple disciplines, mostly linked to the Neuroscience Institute of the Universidad del Bosque, I have entered into the fascinating adventure of understanding the basics of Artificial Intelligence.
How to train a Machine to recognize handwritten numbers in a picture (or anything else for that matter)
Recognizing hand written numbers
In this post, I will explain how to use Machine Learning to build a piece of software that is able to recognize handwritten numbers. I will also explain what other applications this could have for you and your business. This being said, I will not go into implementation details, nor into the mathematics of how this works, the post will just explain the general idea behind this principle.
