I want to train my computer to recognize texts from websites, copy them, insert them somewhere else, and other things like this, but I dont even know where to start my research and what tools should I use. Can you give me an advice?

  • $\begingroup$ You are asking for too much help. Can you program? Do you know how to scrape web pages? What do you want to 'insert' to? A database? Do you know anything about neural networks? $\endgroup$ – Brian O'Donnell Apr 9 '18 at 23:05
  • $\begingroup$ You need to clearly specify what you have done and what exactly you are looking for. $\endgroup$ – Ugnes Apr 10 '18 at 17:18
  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to AI! This question is indeed very broad. I've taken the liberty of adding relevant tags. I'm glad you found a useful answer, but to avoid down votes in future, please try to narrow the scope of the questions, and provide as many details as seems reasonable. $\endgroup$ – DukeZhou Apr 10 '18 at 20:11

What you need is a tutorial. You need somewhere to start, and a goal. There are a ton of libraries out there, with a variety of supported languages. What matters the most is what you plan to do with your AI. Here are a few examples:

Many of these include their own tutorials. Anything you need should be findable on one of these sites. If you need help connecting it to the internet, that should be posted on SO.

As for scraping websites, the libraries are just about as diverse.

  • $\begingroup$ Beautiful Soup would probably be useful if the asker is particularly interested in getting inputs from uncooperative websites. $\endgroup$ – tsbertalan Apr 15 '18 at 23:25
