annie - In Action!

Annie has been used in a number of projects by me and my classmates. If you've used annie successfully in any of your work, please let me know, I'd really appreciate it.

Face Detection

The reason annie was born. We were implementing a face detection and tracking system for videos, and began with a face detection system using neural networks. More details at or

Digit Detection

A little after we started on the face detection system, one of my classmates began work on recognition of written Devnagri text (Hindi) in railway reservation forms in order to automate the process. They figured that once the individual characters were segmented, they could recognize which character each segment is using a feed-forward neural network. They began with detection of numerals and last time I checked had made good progress on that. For more details, contact Abhaya Agarwal.
