Recognizing text in a photo – something we’re quite good at, but neural networks struggle quite a bit with it. While OCR (Optical Character Recognition) (OCR Wikipedia) is a fairly well-known concept, the very similar Scene Text Recognition (STR) problem is not talked about as much. It’s always easier to show than to explain, so……
