🌟 Features

PaddleOCR support a variety of cutting-edge algorithms related to OCR, and developed industrial featured models/solution PP-OCRPP-Structure and PP-ChatOCR on this basis, and get through the whole process of data production, model training, compression, inference and deployment.

It is recommended to start with the “quick experience” in the document tutorial

📖 Technical exchange and cooperation

  • PaddleX provides a one-stop full-process high-efficiency development platform for flying paddle ecological model training, pressure, and push. Its mission is to help AI technology quickly land, and its vision is to make everyone an AI Developer!
    • PaddleX currently covers areas such as image classification, object detection, image segmentation, 3D, OCR, and time series prediction, and has built-in 36 basic single models, such as RP-DETR, PP-YOLOE, PP-HGNet, PP-LCNet, PP- LiteSeg, etc.; integrated 12 practical industrial solutions, such as PP-OCRv4, PP-ChatOCR, PP-ShiTu, PP-TS, vehicle-mounted road waste detection, identification of prohibited wildlife products, etc.
    • PaddleX provides two AI development modes: "Toolbox" and "Developer". The toolbox mode can tune key hyperparameters without code, and the developer mode can perform single-model training, push and multi-model serial inference with low code, and supports both cloud and local terminals.
    • PaddleX also supports joint innovation and development, profit sharing! At present, PaddleX is rapidly iterating, and welcomes the participation of individual developers and enterprise developers to create a prosperous AI technology ecosystem!

🇺🇳 Guideline for New Language Requests

If you want to request a new language support, a PR with 1 following files are needed:

  • In folder ppocr/utils/dict, it is necessary to submit the dict text to this path and name it with {language}_dict.txt that contains a list of all characters. Please see the format example from other files in that folder.

If your language has unique elements, please tell me in advance within any way, such as useful links, wikipedia and so on.

More details, please refer to Multilingual OCR Development Plan.
