  • Startup with a project for someone who wants to learn by doing, such as a student project, or someone self-taught looking for a side project
    We are looking at using AWS Rekognition, which supports OCR and a neural network ML service, because we have $25k in free startup credits to burn through over the next couple of years.

  • AMster & the Brit's Code Corner
    When we think of AWS services, we tend to focus on using them from code we've deployed to the cloud. However, they can equally well be used from code running locally on our machines. In this segment, we look at how I use Amazon Rekognition to support tagging images in my photography hobby, so that I can upload them to stock galleries. I'm somewhat lazy, so leaning on a service to do the basic tagging for me is an... - Source: / 4 months ago

2019 Examples to Compare OCR Services: Amazon Textract/Rekognition vs Google Vision vs Microsoft Cognitive Services
Pricing: Amazon Rekognition, Amazon Textract, Google, Microsoft. We don't really care which one you use, but Microsoft did best by our sample data. Textract was a very close second if you only need its headline feature: extracting text from digital documents. If someone wants to email bill -at- with comparable data for other images/services, I can try to work those into this post as time allows. 😎
