EpicNPoc is a startup working on user interface design for the car industry. Together with two InriaTech engineers, we developed a small proof-of-concept that adapts our drawing recognition technology [9] to their needs. We first adapted our drawing synthesis algorithms to generate artificial sketches of user interface widgets, which include typical distortions and inaccuracies present in real sketches. The two engineers from InriaTech then used this technology to generate a large dataset of drawings, and to train a deep neural network to recognize the widgets in real drawings. The two engineers also integrated the trained network into a real-time system that recognizes widgets as they are drawn on a white board. We advised the engineers in their choice of a deep network architecture and on how to train this network to work on drawings. The result of this collaboration helped EpicNPoc appreciate the robustness of this technology, as well as to evaluate remaining challenges, such as convert the recognized widgets into working user-interface source code.
