Digital document management with DMS

Configurable AI enables document automation

There are many ways to use Document AI profitably in companies. For training machines with Deep Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing, annotating documents is a central step. The software accelerates your AI development and the operation of this AI without setting you technical limits.

Definition of Document AI

Document AI can be defined as a combination of intelligent character recognition (ICR) that uses learning algorithms for generalizable character and word recognition, document layout understanding, and natural language processing (NLP) to rapidly automate highly accurate documents.

This allows organizations to move beyond OCR-based template methods and RPA-based storage efforts, which are not scalable as document variety and volume changes. 

Organizations can focus on delivering faster value to primary users and secondary consumers by focusing on application development and faster integrations using highly accurate extracted information and knowledge (as opposed to updating rules, re-automating template management and moving documents).

What is Document AI?

Document AI is a technology that digitizes and automates the classification, capture and validation of documents. In this way, all relevant information from documents and records is automatically read and transferred into structured data. In this way, Document AI helps to annotate high-quality AI datasets, optimize processes and train machines with Deep Computer Vision and Natural Language AI - the basis of Deep Learning.

What are the benefits of Document AI?

To take advantage of these benefits, modern businesses are increasingly turning to digital automation with the help of Artificial Intelligence and expert partners. Processes involving documents and records can be sustainably optimized, automated and continuously improved with the help of this technology and Deep Learning. Konfuzio relieves your data engineers so that they can train AI even faster and more precisely without losing flexibility, as would be the case with other software. 

Where does Document AI find application?

In this way, they can contribute to the automation and optimization of entire workflows and ensure continuous improvement of AI and the algorithms used. Since understanding business documents is a challenging task due to the variety of layouts and formats, the inferior quality of scanned document images, and the complexity of template structures, it is recommended to work with an experienced and competent partner here.

Annotate even complex documents via the web browser

Annotating documents is also defined as teaching the AI. From about seven annotated documents on, the AI learns. In the following three tutorials, you will learn how to create annotations correctly and thus quickly teach the AI the activity you need for your company with just a few document examples.

Link Document AI(s) to existing systems as a REST API

Leverage Konfuzio's scalable infrastructure in the cloud or self-hosted to effectively deploy your project. Scale your document AI(s) for multiple API endpoints and leverage the highly secure separation of data by users, groups and projects by using Konfuzio.

Optimize processes with Document AI

A solution that provides professional document processing from the cloud or self-hosted, as well as high-quality information culling, is Konfuzio. The solution implements fast and reliable culling, categorization, and processing in multiple languages, enabling optimization of data- and document-related processes.

Konfuzio's AI software can be used via web browser and processes PDF, TIF, PNG, JPG and GIF formats. Not only complex processes can be optimized, but also the algorithms of machines can be trained with Deep Computer Vision and Natural Language AI. The powerful machine learning solution can be implemented in the cloud as well as on-premise.

Automate processes intelligently

In addition to training for AI algorithms, the optimization and automation of business processes is a core capability of Document AI. Using this technology companies are able to conserve employee resources and automate repetitive tasks. This creates a wide range of benefits that can put them a decisive step ahead of the competition. Especially in the financial sector, Document AI from the cloud or self-hosted can generate enormous benefits. These include:

  1. Time and cost savings through automated digitization
  2. Relieving the workload of employees in combination with RPA
  3. Better data quality
  4. Intelligent process optimization

Easy process integration of AI

With Konfuzio's Document AI, the data of the read documents is available within seconds in an uncomplicated manner and can be further processed in the company's own target system. In addition, further individual rules for data processing can be implemented to fit the requirements of different companies. This is how the process of Document AI works in just a few steps:

  1. Reading and digitization of the text on the documents by a photo or scan
  2. Uploading photos and scans via the API (interface)
  3. Automatic capture and extraction of the information
  4. Automatic and intelligent filing and further processing of data

Program your own Document AI with the Konfuzio Python SDK

Konfuzio is a data-centric Document AI tool for building intelligent document workflows. It provides data engineers with a development environment in Python (Python SDK) to customize the AI source code, develop fully custom models and control document workflows with AI.

Document AI with EU data protection

A particular advantage of Konfuzio compared to the international solutions of Google and Co. is that the company operates from Germany and all data always remain within the European legal area. All data is therefore protected in accordance with DGSVO. In addition, support is provided in German and also always within the EU. This is often not the case with solutions from Google and others, and the servers of the corresponding cloud are stationed outside the EU.

For which companies is Document AI worthwhile? 

As Document AI is a solution for professional document processing, it can be a huge relief for all industries and companies. Especially for those that have to cope with a high amount of work with the processing and archiving of documents and records. Especially there, repetitive and organizational tasks prevent effective work and tie up resources where they are not used very effectively.

Can Document AI also be used from the cloud?

Yes, Konfuzio's Document AI can be used from the cloud via API interface. Since Helm & Nagel GmbH is the originator of the software, we also provide the software for installation as a Docker container or for a Kubernetes cluster. Using it via the web browser or via REST API is straightforward.
