Just a quickie test in Python 3 (using Requests) to see if Google Cloud Vision can be used to effectively OCR a scanned data table and preserve its structure, in the way that products such as ABBYY FineReader can OCR an image and provide Excel-ready output.
The short answer: No. While Cloud Vision provides bounding polygon coordinates in its output, it doesn't provide it at the word or region level, which would be needed to then calculate the data delimiters.
On the other hand, the OCR quality is pretty good, if you just need to identify text anywhere in an image, without regards to its physical coordinates. I've included two examples:

I've been looking for the best Linux backup system, and also reading lots of HN comments.
Instead of putting pros and cons of every backup system I'll just list some deal-breakers which would disqualify them.
Also I would like that you, the HN community, would add more deal breakers for these or other backup systems if you know some more and at the same time, if you have data to disprove some of the deal-breakers listed here (benchmarks, info about something being true for older releases but is fixed on newer releases), please share it so that I can edit this list accordingly.

services.cluster-name.domain.io. Note, v4 registrator must be used until registrator/124 is resolved.

I'm going to cover a simple, but effective, utility for managing state and transitions (aka workflow). We often need to store the state (status) of a model and it should only be in one state at a time.
