Intelligent Document Processing (IDP)

Automate information extraction from any business document with guaranteed quality using next-generation AI and data processing crowd.

What Makes super.AI IDP Different?

First-generation IDP solutions used basic AI techniques that require extensive setup, post-processing, and exception handling. Super.AI IDP is a next-generation solution built on top of a unified AI platform that can process any document or unstructured data type. Our platform leverages the latest AI for the best results, guarantees outcomes, and offers access to an on-demand data processing crowd to accelerate automation while reducing costs and complexity.
Industry-Leading Results
Unified AI platform breaks down complex processing tasks into simpler ones. Each task is routed to the best AI, human, or software worker for optimal results.
Automatic Automation
Results from any mix of human, AI, and software worker are intelligently combined into a unified output. New AI workers are continuously deployed to rapidly increase automation rates.
Guaranteed Outcome
Users define trade-offs between quality, cost, and speed, then the platform automatically selects the right combination of AI, human, and bot workers to guarantee results.
Data Processing Crowd
Super.AI is the only IDP solution that provides curated crowd-sourced workers. Built-in gamification keeps workers engaged, and 150+ quality control mechanisms ensure output standards are consistently met or exceeded.

Frequently Asked
Questions

What is Intelligent Document Processing (IDP)?

Intelligent Document Processing is the process of classifying and extracting data from business documents using multiple artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies to enable end-to-end process automation.

What is Next-generation IDP and how is different from first-generation?

First-generation IDP solutions put a modern interface on top of OCRs. They used AI and ML to extract data from OCRs, but required extensive initial training and ongoing maintenance. They lacked crowd-sourced worker to train AI during setup, post-processing, and exception handling to continuously improve automation rates. They only provided AI provided levels at a document or field level, but did not guarantee outcomes - quality, cost, or speed.

What is Unstructured Data Processing (UDP) and how is it different from IDP?

IDP solutions are designed to only process documents.  UDP solutions on the other hand offer a unified AI platform that is able to process any unstructured data type - documents, images, videos, audio, and text.

What is OCR or intelligent OCR?

Optical Character Recognition (OCR) has been used to digitize scanned documents for decades.  Later iterations of OCR solutions allowed users to extract data from digitized documents using templates that defined the position of fields in various documents.  These solutions worked well for the structured documents but required a lot of setup and maintenance for semi-structured documents such as invoices and purchase orders.

How is IDP different from OCR?

IDP solutions are modern solutions designed for business users to extract data from structured and semi-structured documents.  They use AI and ML to classify and extract data from documents digitized using OCRs to deliver higher accuracy at a lower cost.

How is IDP different from Document AI?

Document AI is another name for modern cloud-based OCR solutions that leverage AI and ML to improve the quality of document digitization.  IDP solutions are built on top of OCR and Document AI solutions to classify and extract data from documents.

How is super.AI IDP different from its competitors?

Super.AI IDP differs from competitors in the following areas:

  1. Any Data Type - Super.AI IDP is uniquely built on a unified AI platform that can classify and extract data from any data type - documents, images, videos, audio, and text, not just documents.
  2. Touchless Automation - Super.AI breaks document processing into small tasks and uses the best AI, human, or bot workers for each task.  It continuously learns from humans to deploy new AI workers to deliver industry-leading automation rates.
  3. Guaranteed Outcomes - Super.AI uniquely allows users to make trade-offs between quality, cost, and speed and auto-allocated the right combination of AI, human, and bot workers to guarantee desired outcomes.
  4. Crowd-sourced Resources - Super.AI is the only IDP provider that allows you to use curated crowd-sourced resources for initial training and ongoing post-processing and exception handling to reduce the cost and complexity of deploying and maintaining an IDP solution. Super.AI uses 150+ quality measures and gamification to keep the crowd resources engaged and performing at the highest possible level.
What is AI document processing and how is it different from IDP?

IDP is sometimes also referred to as AI document processing.

What is Data Capture and how is different from IDP?

Data capture solutions were document classification and extraction solutions that used regular expression to classify documents and templates to extract data from structured and semi-structured documents.

What technologies do IDP solutions use?

IDP solutions use a combination of computer vision, document AI, OCR, fuzzy matching, machine learning, supervised learning, and/or active learning to classify and extract data from documents.

What are the key components of IDP?

IDP solutions include some of following components:

  • Pre-processors: This was used in early versions of intelligent document processing to improve the quality of scanned documents using techniques such as descewing, binarization, noise reduction, etc. Modern cloud OCRs and document AI solutions now natively include this capability.
  • Digitizer: This module uses one or more OCR and/or document AI solutions to digitize the documents.
  • Classifier: Uses a combination of techniques to classify a document.
  • Router: Some UDP and next-generation IDP solutions have the ability to break down document processing into pieces and route each one to a different AI to improve quality. Some can also route data to multiple OCR solutions to improve quality.
  • Extractor: Uses combination of AI and ML techniques to extract desired data from digitized documents.  Some solutions still require a template or extensive initial training for semi-structured documents such as invoices and POs.
  • Post-processor: Uses a combination of rules and ML to validate and enrich the extracted data
  • Combiner: The combiner then uses AI techniques combine the output intelligently from multiple sources to provide a combined structured output.
  • Trainer: Uses supervised learning, or active learning to continuously learn from humans to deploy new AI workers for higher automation rates.
What type of documents can super.AI IDP process?

Super.AI IDP solution is designed to process any type of document - structured, semi-structured, or unstructured.  It can process handwritten notes and understand signatures, logos, and stamped approvals.

What formats of documents/files does IDP support?

IDP solutions, including those from super.AI, can handle multiple document formats - Digitala and scanned PDFs, TIFF, GIF, JPED, PNG, etc.

Can IDP classify documents?

Many IDP solutions, including super.AI, can classify a document.

Can IDP process handwritten text?

Some IDP solutions can process handwriting. However, the capabilities are all over the map. Some only handle block text. Others can handle cursive. Most have a limited number of languages they can process a document in. Since super.AI has an open architecture, it can be easily customized to use the best document AI or OCR solutions for handwriting in a given language.
