Google OCR used in CORDA?


(aswink) #1

Hello All,
am asked to explore OCR(Optical Character Recognition)
[https://cloud.google.com/vision/docs/ocr] promoted by Google inside CORDA? Any one any ideas or pointers to start with ?

1)the smart contract will primarily have validations that will use this OCR and match contents from PDFs and other Attachments as against other fed-in values.

please share your thoughts and any relevant links

cheers

Smart contracts in Corda must be deterministic so they cannot include code to perform OCR. What you can do is use OCR from flows, however.
