  1. Recognize Vancouver Olympic Torch in photo

    Photo of landmark in Vancouver, Canada is incorrectly identified as "a plane parked on the side of the road" - it should at least be identified as a monument or sculpture.

  4. Make detecting hollow text better

    Trying to find text on an image with hollow text doesn't return the right text results from the image and sometimes returns none at all.

  6. Symbols or individual characters not recognized.

    MS Handwriting recognition is best-in-class in reading poor handwriting, but seems algorithm chooses not to recognize individual symbols or characters by themselves. All text is not written in full words.

    The following examples never process the same symbol correctly on successive lines. Symbols, or even "0" or "o" are ignored when left by themselves.

  7. Object recognition for retail

    I would like to be able to match objects in shelf. This functionality has great value for retail, on stock availability, face count, etc

  9. Recognize columns of data/tabular data

    As shown in my attached image, there are two columns, but it recognizes only one of them. Strangely, the heading of column 2 is paired with data from column 1.

  10. "Adult" image detection needs more training

    Specifically, many close-ups of male privates are not identified as either Adult or Racy. A bit of a shocker..

    Can't post examples here for obvious reasons..lol
