Wanted to do a fun project including OCR technology and the Monzo application.
What it does
The Receiptful webapp receives an image from the user and sends it to Google's OCR, and upon receiving the interpreted text back, decodes and formats the data so that the receipt data is included in the transaction on the Monzo User's application.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We originally used Microsoft Azure's OCR, but found it unsuitable due to the format of interpretations.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Building an app that utilizes APIs and AI.
What we learned
How to work with OCRs and webapp requests
What's next for Receiptful
Integration of OAuth, and integration into Monzo's app.
