I have been looking into the old technologies that gave birth to OCR and its many advantages. I used to think that probably this technology may not last long as part of the new digital infrastructure but I realized that this is going to stay for long time may be until we stop manufacturing printers and/or we stop writing. The form factor and types of devices that does OCR will change but the technology will remain the same. The industry does thrive more right now on buzzwords like Cloud OCR and Mobile OCR. Let’s try to discuss a few point in this blog around the same:

Put something up in the cloud, and who knows who will access your data and how they plan to use it. Again, it is more to do with the infrastructure than the technology.
