Early Access Release of Marina Samuel's "Optical Character Recognition" Chapter

Michael DiBernardo - Tue 02 February 2016 -

Today we've published the sixteenth chapter in our early access release for 500 Lines. The chapter was written by Marina Samuel.

Most programmers feel a certain sense of wonder the first few times they write a working program. However, there is a special sense of wonder that comes from writing a program that can actually learn behaviours that the programmer has not explicitly specified.

In this chapter, Marina shows us how to write a program that recognizes handwritten characters by using the machine-learning technique of training a neural network to do the job for us.

As usual, if you find errors you think are worth reporting, please open an issue on our GitHub tracker.

Enjoy!
