If we look around us, we will realize that artificial intelligence surrounds us more and more. Let's be realistic, every one of us dreams about a super-car in which you will be able to sit and say where you want to go and the car will be driven by itself. We are witnesses that it is not an unrealistic dream. Just for that reason, we want to share with you our project that has a very similar way of working as cars we mentioned. In the beginning, it will be just a primitive network of neurons but we will teach it to recognize numbers.
This project is still in progress but the final goal is to get a picture from the camera, transfer it to the neural network which should recognize number from the picture and print out results on screen via HDMI.
Below is a basic diagram of the system.
Also, we made a video about this project. The video's goal is to give a small intro about the hardware and software implementation.
Documentation and Source Code are given below. Since the project is still in building phase, neither Documentation nor Source Codes are complete. Documentation provides all theoretical information needed for project realization, on the other hand, Source Codes gives RTL Hardware Design part of the project.
By the time we finish everything, we encourage you to start slowly learning about Machine Learning Algorithms and be prepared to implement Neural Network by yourself very soon!
