I work for one of the biggest utilities companies in the US and currently working on a project involving automatically updating electric meter readings sent by our customers to our mainframe. I was taking part 1 of this course as a try and tested the fast.ai library with only 45 images: 15 analog meters, 15 standard, and 15 digital…the result? 87% accuracy!
We get almost 1000 images a day so imagine how many I can feed this same model after a week or two…or maybe just after 1 day! Can’t wait to see the results!
Next step is to have it identify where on the image the numbers are then will have it identify the numbers individually to give me a full meter reading.
Thanks fast.ai team!
