Converting Images To Text with Data Science!

See the Code

As an enthusiast of Instagram, I am excited to have the opportunity to show case my data science skills using my own data. About a year and half ago, my friends and I started an Instagram (IG) account to document bars we visited in downtown Houston. After several months of documenting images with information, my friend proposed the question: “Is it possible to extract the information from the images into a table to be leveraged else where?” As a proven data scientist I told my friends not to worry as I would develop a solution that we could use to convert the existing and future post into usable tabular data. This demo was created to show case the results to the following questions: Phase 1: How to extract the images from Instagram (IG)? Phase 2: How to filter only the templated images? Phase 3: How to extract the desired information from each image?
