What are some of the toughest engineering problems Captricity is facing now?
We automatically recognize documents and read unconstrained handwriting with a combination of computer vision, deep learning and crowdsourcing. We wrangle massively parallel GPU clusters and crowdsource at a scale that pushes the capacity of existing crowdsourcing platforms. All this to automatically train deep learning engines that leverage the largest handwriting recognition dataset ever assembled.
