Welcome to Bengali.AI

Bengali.AI is a community that works to open-source datasets for research.
Start off by simply writing the following word on the notebook.


The Bengali.AI Computer Vision Challenge 2019 is live! The topic of this year’s challenge is Bengali Handwritten Grapheme Recognition. || Competition Link || Introductory Booklet ||
A grand finale for the Bengali Handwritten Digits Recognition competition was held in Independent University, Bangladesh on July 6, 2018. The program included networking sessions, invited talks, and a prize/certificate distribution session. Dr. M Kaykobad was present as the chief guest of the program.
We co-organized a competition on Bengali Handwritten Digits Recognition with Third Space Research Lab (University of Toronto). The competition started on 22nd May and finished on 30th June 2018.
We organized a three-hour long workshop titled Deep Learning for Computer Vision on June 2, 2018. The event was hosted at Center for Cognitive Skill Enhancement, IUB .

Putting Bengali Language Research on the map

Bangla (বাংলা) has a rich heritage of literature that dates back to almost a thousand years. Even with a huge number of native speakers, Bengali is lagging behind in Natural Language Processing (NLP).
From government services to education, from agriculture to healthcare, Bengali-NLP research would make lives easier for everyone.


Computer Vision in Bengali

Today, computers are smart enough to analyze an image and return information on the visual content.
With Computer Vision, we can:

Detect printed or handwritten text in images.
Detect and Recognize Objects.
Recognize Celebrities or Landmarks.
Describe images with meaningful sentences.

The caption for this picture would be:

“একজন সানগ্লাস পরিহিত পুরুষ রিক্সা চালাচ্ছেন"
