Draw a digit between 0 and 9 above and then click classify. A neural network will predict your digit in the blue square above. Your image is
784 pixels (= 28 rows by 28 columns with black=1 and white=0). Those 784 features get fed into a 3 layer neural network;
Input:784 - AvgPool:196 - Dense:100 - Softmax:10. The net has 20,600 learned weights hardcoded into
The best nets are convolutional neural networks and they can achieve 99.8% accuracy.
An example coded in Python with Keras and TensorFlow is here.
Additionally this page allows you to download your hand drawn images. Your images get added
to your history showing above to the right. Click 'download' to receive a CSV of digits with or without labels. You can import that CSV
into your neural network software for training or testing. The format of the CSV is the same as Kaggle's. Each row is a digit with 784 pixels representing a 28x28 image
(rows first). If you download with labels, then each row begins with the label.
Assign true labels by clicking images in your history above and then clicking the correct keyboard key
Each image is cropped before classification and before adding to history. If you don't want images cropped, hit the shift key to expose two
new buttons. Then hit the button that says, 'Crop Off'. To clear the entire history, simply reload the webpage. To remove one image from history, click it, then
You can visually watch a neural network learn here.
