What technology can I use to take a picture of an insurance card that will extract the text and then format it to certain fields inside an app?
I think you are looking for OCR libraries. Not sure on which platform are you developing though - I used rebbix s (Git) two years ago - seems quiet over there so you might need to look for something more up-to-date. Anyway start from there hope it helps.
What would happen if the Tesseract was destroyed on Asgard by Surtur and Thanos couldn't use it?
If the Space Stone was destroyed on Asgard it would only slow but not stop Thanos in his crusade to balance the universe as he sees fit. Three scenariose to mind. One Thanos uses any other remaining Stones to trash the universe over many missions. italic Remember he was able to rip sections of Titan moon off its surface to throw at the heroes fighting him on his ruined homeworld and that was with four stones. It wouldn be a stretch for him to use a few Stones to pummel some other worlds with their moons or even small asteroids. The downside of the missing Space Stone here was that it allowed him to teleport himself or others nearby anywhere he chose. So he need a ship to get to the various places he wanted to balance barring a creative use of the Reality Stone to change the nature of the universe for some other method of transport. Two With the Time Stone in possession Thanos does the same thing to Asgard as he did against Vision body after Wanda managed to destroy the android and the Mind Stone in his headhe reverses time. italic Thanos could just reverse time to bring Asgard back into existence pop himself into Odin weapons vault and take the Tesseract before Loki does it near the end of Thor Ragnorok italic . The Time Stone would allow him to see what destroys Asgard and just avoid that drama to get the Stone and let Hela and Surtur duke it out balancing things out without him doing a thing. Loki might still remain alive in this scenario since Thanos will have no pressing desire to board the Statesman italic and destroy it while getting the Space Stone. Three Thanos just visits the remnants of Asgardian space and plucks the Stone out of space. italic The Infinity Stones are extremely durable and probably have endured calamity after calamity since their formation. A small planetary body like Asgard blowing up around it wouldn hurt it. But the first and third scenarios are more likely. Thanos chides Doctor Strange for not apparently using the Time Stone as a weapon against the Titan. In reality Strange already did use the Time Stone in a way that Thanos hasn learnedas a tool for knowledge to see the past and the future for ultimate victorythe basis for Endgame italic . Thanos is too pragmatic with his use of the Stones while the few others that have had them in their brief possession have used them with more creative (and even less destructive) means.
Which libraries do real-time OCR for iPhone or Android?
I know a translation application can do real time OCR for you. I am using CC Smart Eye - Live Text Translator it is more accurate with its translation. Its main feature is to capture s through mobile device camera retrieve the by using its built-in OCR Engine and then starts to translate it. Even more you can search the that you have captured on Bing. I think you can search it on google play. Or you can go to get more information.
I need help in making an Android app that uses OCR technology. What is the best OCR technology (in terms of accuracy): ABBYY Mobile OCR or Tesseract OCR engine?
ABBYY is an industry leader and is known for being the best OCR engine you can get. ABBYY Mobile OCR is going to give you sample projects and access to the support you need to build a successful application. It may be worth contacting Abbyy about your project specifically to make sure the product they have can meet all of your needs. ABBYY Mobile OCR may cost you money up front and even royalties but if your goal is to produce an application that is quality then I would stick withmercially supported SDK and tool kits when you can unless you happen to already be an expert with OCR technologies and can fix any bugs you may find in Tesseract or have the luxury of waiting for fixes or enhancements of an opensource project. ABBYYS Mobile OCR features are here ABBYY Mobile OCR Engine s Tesseract FAQ is here tesseract-ocr s You might do some research and make sure both or either one can actually fit your application requirements.
Why would people build native mobile applications for Android/iOS using Java/Objective-C when they could use Xamarin/C# for all platforms if license cost isn't an issue?
Mostly religious reasons which usually narrow thinking ability to understand people - technology in this case and this is where discussion stops. And Church-Of-Apple is special breed (check previous answers) though my 1st box was IIe and today is MBP I was never infected. I can remember my 1st talk about MonoDroid later Mono for Android now in 211-2. The first question by java developer was Can you do F5? (start the app with single keystroke). I could but this exs most native developers and their mindset. Why native? Because the definition for native is needed (this sounds like organic or bio-something hype). When Android developer tells me Xamarin is not native it is easy to prove them wrong with iOS it is slightly more difficult but doable with longer discussion.n nUsual conversation with native Android dev actually this is almost stenogram of last discussion 2 weeks ago (AFB IFB XFB android ios xamarin fanboy respectively XFB - me) XFB So you develop natively with java and Android SDK?nAFB nods or says YesnXFB So what is NDK for?nAFB This is for native++ developmentnSmart ones use c-c++ cos they get that the question is leading them onto thin ice so for them I need more Qs to lower their quardnXFB So why c-c++? What is c++ used for?nNeed to wait for word native then the guard is lowered and hands are So theoretically I can write perfectly legal Android app natively in c++? Why do I need java? So it is easy with Android devs to prove that their definition of native lacks something. This is simply because of technology (VM bytecode etc). With iOS it is a bit different because there is no VM objective-c is superset of c and thus is closer to the metal. But questions like What is more native objective-c or swift? lowers their guard too. Those religious zealots do not understand technology and that programming language is only one parameter in thisplex topic and there is much more to it. In mobile world I personally define native as toolset vendor has chosen to back-up development on their platform so native (so-called-native) is java on Android and objective-c on iOS. It is possible to call java from c++ thus writing Android UI in c++. The same is for iOS with objective-c++. But is it feasible? In most cases not. On the other side try searching for libraries for VoIP (SIP protocol) or OCR for iOS and Android or even better try implementing those. There is no widely used fanboy-native libraries only those written in c++ (SIP -PJSIP OCR - tesseract). Yes there are SIP stack libs written in java or even c# but not for real-life use-case should define which tools can be used. SIP phone implementations on both Android and iOS call native (c++) from native world (objective-c) and this is exactly what Xamarin does but native is c## and native are (c++ libSomething.a or libSomething.a jar) How native or not-native Xamarin is check this one (with update 2 s) made by ex Googler Harry Cheungn 215-3n s@harrycheung s@harrycheung n215-2 n s@harrycheung s@harrycheung For decision making based on code sharing let us share code and reduce cost by reading answers about one use-casen Why did Trello choose Xamarin? question qid 319781 Today even Apple is copying ideas and well proven technologies to enable their multi-language paradigms and multiple hardware platforms and OS-es. Those technologies (il intermediate language bytecode quasi assemblers high level machine code) are used by mono for 15-2 years. Nobody's talking about Apple's biggest developer news Bitcode App Thinning (iOS watchOS) s App Thinning is what Microsoft already does with Windows Phone and Windows Store apps optimizing code in the store and final optimizations for device and OS after installation (download from store) on the device itself. But for the developers that don't want to have cost-reduced apps this might be difficult to accept due to religious beliefs.
What are some open source OCRs that can be integrated with a mobile application running on Android?
I agree with Ilya - Tesseract is the most popular choice. There is a largemunity of developers who are constantly improving the tool. However Tesseract still lacks many fine-tuned features which make one lives easier and which take much time to implement for example the pre-processing of the images. You can also use Anyline. Its an OCR SDK you can download for free on the website Download OCR SDK | Anyline s nit very easy to integrate and it an out of the box solution!
