Christoffer Edlund and Johan Burström from Umeå University ICT Services and System Development (ITS) will show how ITS use convolutional neural networks to find passport information in a huge amount of scanned and photographed images.

This application of machine learning allows the Swedish Council For Higher Education (UHR) to save a lot of time previously spent manually screening student applications for higher education in Sweden. This saves money and gives the students a faster and better service, for example when determining whether the student must pay application and semester fees for studying in Sweden.

ITS has been kind to arrange with light food and drinks and a place to be.
