Making printed links clickable with TensorFlow 2 object detection #ML #MachineLearning #TensorFlow @Trekhleb
Have you ever seen hyperlinks in a printed book or article and wanted to click on them to see what they are? The trekhleb.dev blog provides just such a solution using a mobile phone camera and software based on TensorFlow2 for machine learning.
We will use TensorFlow 2 Object Detection API to train a custom object detector model to find positions and bounding boxes of the sub-strings like
https://in the text image (i.e. in smartphone camera stream).
The text of each link (right continuation of
https://bounding box) will be recognized by using Tesseract library. The recognition part will not be covered in this article, but you may find the complete code example of the application in links-detector repository.
