What it does
It has 2 main features:
- You can scan someone's business card using the android app and it uses OCR and natural language processing to extract relevant information to create a contact based on that information
- You can scan your own business card, but instead of adding it as a contact, you can generate a QR code which anyone can scan to automatically add your contact to their phone.
How we built it
We used deep learning for text detection and recognition, and natural language processing then processes the recognized text and extracts the person's name, business, phone number, and email.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Our NLP algorithm can differentiate between different samples of text and effectively extract relevant information which we are proud of.
What we learned
We learned a lot about android app development as this was our first time trying it.
