[en] The Shareish platform project has been created to encourage mutual sharing of
goods in the context of gift economy and generalized exchange. One of the critical aspect of the platform is to localize items on a map and to provide them with a detailed
description. This however is time consuming and ungrateful to do by hand, to address
this problem the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and more specifically computer vision
has been explored and integrated in the back-end of the prototype platform. Previously, an item recognition network has been already deployed and the Tesseract optical
character recognition engine was used to provide experimental results. This work will
expand and refine the integration of machine learning in the platform by introducing
metrics, defining tasks, and comparing different networks.
Previous work has been done relative to AI integration for the website : an automatic
image tagger trained on ImageNet, where some preliminary metric have been computed, fully integrated in the website. Tesseract was also tested as text detection and
reading model, the formal comparison between this model and the other new models
proposed is one of the subject of this document.
