Updated: Oct 3

10 Nov 2021 (Wed) | 11:00 - 18:30 | Webinar

 

Description:

Computer Vision (CV) and Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technologies have been famous for their accuracy in recognizing images and objects. They are able to learn and improve through studying different models. However, the entry barrier of controlling this technology is fairly high. Come and learn how you can overcome the challenges and best use this powerful technology.


This webinar aims to equip ICT professionals with the knowledge on understanding the trends, technologies, applications, limitations and the future trends of Computer Vision (CV) and Optical Character Recognition (OCR).


Purpose:

To equip Hong Kong ICT professionals with knowledge on the latest digital transformation trends and implementation strategies.
