Google Street View lets recognize house numbers with 90 percent accuracy




Developers at Google have an algorithm for recognizing house numbers in Street View images in their own words greatly improved. The algorithm could also detect up to 90 percent of hard-to-read house numbers with the help of inputs through its reCaptcha service.

Google uses for number recognition ocr algorithms developed for analyzing photographs of Street View, part of Google Maps, and reCaptcha, an anti-spam security. The latter is used partly pictures of house numbers for displaying captchas. ReCaptcha are more than a hundred million times shown daily.

Meanwhile, says Google to be able to recognize from images shot for Street View. to 90 percent of hard-to-read house numbers consisting of several digits, a separate data set is investigated through the use of neural network technology and improved algorithms Through hard to read house numbers also to dish to internet via reCaptcha recognition might even be increased to 99.8 percent.

Improved OCR algorithms might as Google can solve. To 99 percent of the existing text-CAPTCHAs Nevertheless, it would study have helped in improving its reCaptcha service, partly by showing to internet users. less text captchas
