Any help greatly appreciated!]]>
By the way, I have to admit I’m the kind of guy that pays cards in full at the end of each month; credit is still somewhat of a mystery and leverage downright black magic to me. : )
Edit: A recent article puts some numbers to your parallel (“Over the past decade, Germany [..] saw sales to Greece, Spain and Portugal soar 66%, 59% and 30%, respectively [but] imported relatively little from those nations in return — partly, many here point out, because those countries still have relatively little to sell.”).
And, I also thought that the spendthrifts are trying to hire the villagers, not compete with them?]]>
The big responsible siblings were selling some pretty expensive goods through their luxury department stores.
A couple of big, rich customers started having troubles at home and stopped buying too much from the department store. The other, poorer customers that used to buy from the department store, started increasingly buying from the new cheap flea-markets, run by the families of the village next-door. These next-door families used to be poor but lately they start getting richer and richer, still managing to sell things for low prices. These families were still unaccustomed to luxury and do not need to spend much to pay themselves. This was reflected in the prices of their products…
The big siblings realized that the rest of the world could not buy their expensive stuff. However, their poor siblings would be good customers for their own department stores. So, they gave a credit card to the young siblings, so that they can shop and buy from the department stores of the big siblings. This helped significantly the sales of the department stores, until the younger siblings realized that they have no money to pay their credit card debt.
The big siblings are kind of scared now: they realize that the growth of their department store has been funded by the debt that the younger siblings were accumulating. Paying for the debt of the young siblings is counterproductive and will encourage more debt accumulation. At the same time, if the young siblings do not have lines of credit they will not be able to buy from the department store. This means that not only the young siblings cannot maintain their good way of life, but also the big siblings will not be able to maintain their own luxurious lifestyle, without the purchases that kept the store growing over the last few years.
The only solution is to educate the young siblings to start producing and selling stuff. At the same time all the siblings need to compete with the cheap markets organized by the poor villagers next-door…]]>
I think that porting GoCR is a waste of time. The only thing fast enough for such small platforms would be a convolutional neural network trained to detect single letters (possibly including rotated letters). This simplifies to a large set of convolutions of the image,which can be done very efficiently in phase space, works without a large dictionary, and would be fast enough to scan paragraphs of text in real-time. However, such systems are very hard to train and the availability of sufficient training data is a real challenge…]]>
I was curious about the code you provided. Are the results above generated using the code? Also I wanted to know how to install and run your code and get more insight on the whole process.
