Busy start to the year
The work at on Indic text detection in natural scenes is progressing fine. I started the project on 2 Jan and hope to complete it by mid-Feb.
My first experience in a research environment – and I honestly can’t get enough of it. Even given the fact that it’s a 2 hour bus ride from my place to the Stastical Institute. Using OpenCV and Visual C++ for the development. Not that geeky as to shun Microsoft when it’s useful: never believed in blind adherence or that sort of thing.
Now busy tweaking the code to refine the results. It’s a huge relief to be done with the boiler-plate coding.
