Have you ever been at a bar, talking to someone you think is cute and they write there number on a napkin. Then the next day rolls around and you cant read the numbers they wrote down! Well as a computer scientist this happens a lot so we developed a neural network that can try to predict what written numbers actually are!
While this might seem plausible the real issue is something more important than getting someones number. The United States Postal Service (USPS) has had a similar problem with reading peoples mailing address. A well defined dataset called the MNIST dataset was created to try and solve this problem. By using the Keras Library I trained a Neural Network to show how to start implementing this.
