One thing that has always bothered me as a regular MeetUp participant is that I usually arrive home with a small collection of business cards (aka namecards in Asia), and the most direct method of getting that data into my address book was manual typing. Therefore, doing OCR via a mobile camera’s phone seemed like an interesting project that would solve a problem that I already had (as evidenced by the dozen neat stacks of cards waiting to be typed in on a table at home).
If there are any questions about the presentation, please ask below, or via the MeetUp group (or at the next NodeSchool!).
