Scala Dojo "Digits Recognizer"
This is a Scala port of Mathias Brandewinder's F# digit recognizer dojo
This Dojo is inspired by the Kaggle Digit Recognizer contest. The goal is to write a Machine Learning classifier from scratch, a program that will recognize hand-written digits automatically. It is a guided Dojo, suitable for beginners: the Dojo comes with a Script file, with specific tasks to complete, introducing along the way numerous Scala concepts and syntax examples. The Dojo is on the longer side; for a group with limited Scala experience, it is recommended to schedule it for 2 hours and a half.
