Image to Text (image@sparkbot.io)

Bot by Darren Henwood
Whilst a picture tells a thousand words...text allows you to search.

The Image to Text bot allows you to convert an image into text. Using powerful machine learning, you can obtain important metadata on your image as well as convert any text within the image to searchable text for Cisco Spark.

To get started, add the Image bot (image@sparkbot.io) to a space, mention it with the @ symbol, then upload an image. The bot will post a response with characteristics about the image, as well as any text detected in the image. The bot also supports you performing a screen capture from the Spark client or even referencing an image from a URL.

Just a few examples of this bot in action such as importing business cards into Spark or converting a text based image directly into text to process or search later. Another more advanced example may include automating a business process based on what is contained in the image; i.e. a picture of a car accident could trigger an emergency event.
