I need to read the digits of images like the one below:
From what I understand, this will involve:
- Registering and segmenting the image into each individual digit
- Hand labeling a bunch of these individual digit images
- Training a classifier based on that hand labeled data
- Putting it all together
Am I on the right track? Am I correct in thinking there is no way to read the whole 7 digit integer at once? (Don't care about the decimal.)
If so, can anyone recommend resources on the best way to approach 1?
And what would be the best ML technique for 3?
