I am creating a POC for business card scanner application.
I am using Firebase ML kit for getting text blocks and texts from image of the card.
I want to achieve following three things. From which, I have acheved first two things and need help for the third one.
- Extract possible mobile numbers from card.
- Extract email address from card.
- Extract person name from card. (There could be more than one person for some business card)
I have achieved point 1 and 2. But couldn’t figurout way for the third one.
After searching through google and some medium blogs, I came to know that for extracing possible names, we can use NLP.
But to be honest, I am totally unaware of using such things.
I also came across to the term called NER (Named Entity Recognition). But, I couldn’t find any implementations for Android.
It would be great help if you can lead me to right dierection or provide me some links for the tutorial or blogs.
