Predicting Numbers

Neural Networks producing red hot predictions

Michael Lai

Lately I’ve been building a model that can read your mind… or just your handwriting.

Using Tensorflow, Flask, and Heroku, I created an app that can guess numbers drawn on it.

Here’s me presenting my app!

The model is a convolutional neural network trained on the MNIST data set. The next step would be for me to store the drawn data and add it to my model… maybe when I have a bit more time.

It kinda sucks at guessing 9s and 0s, a consequence of a model that’s over fit to its specific training data. Maybe adding some deformations to the dataset would improve performance.

The instructions are simple, just click on the grid and draw a number.
