Project Description

A Czech money reading mobile app for blind & visually impaired people. Visually impaired people often struggle to recognize their banknotes, they need help of their relatives before they go shopping or they have to use impractical tools. When they travel, the situation is even more difficult for them. Cash Reader uses the power of deep learning in a money identification app. A user has to show the banknote to the phone’s camera to immediately know the currency and denomination. Cash Reader can currently identify banknotes of more than 80 currencies and is available on both iOS and Android platforms. During the hackathon, the team wants to try newest Microsoft’s AI tools and discuss their solution with professionals.
