OpenCV allows you to process photos in new and exciting ways. This talk is a real-world use case of the software: building a diagram recognizer for Lucidchart. Our goal was to create a system that would allow a user to take a photograph of a flowchart on a whiteboard and create a Lucidchart diagram from that photograph. We were able to achieve this goal but decided to not commercialize the system. I will discuss the challenges faced, the capabilities of the system, and the real world limitations. [155]

I really appreciated a talk showing a hard thing that was attempted, even though it turned out to fail in the end. Sharing the learning along the way was great.
