Can Machine Learning Defeat the Venerable Structured Template?

The venerable template allows structured form data to be accurately extracted. In the document capture industry, the concept of templates where you specify the location of each data element is a tried-and-true strategy for structured forms. If the form is standardized, giving the software the precise place to look for data will almost always result in better performance over alternatives such as rules-based approaches using keywords or patterns. Even with unstructured data such as on invoices, we find that many organizations have opted for a template approach after finding that more flexible, rules-based approaches fall short. The result is a tremendous amount of upfront effort and a lot of maintenance.

Clearing the Complication - Making Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence Accessible and Useful

These days it feels almost impossible to have a conversation with anyone involved in the world of Information Management without bringing up machine learning and artificial intelligence. Everyone is talking about it, everyone has an opinion, everyone claims to be doing it — or at least thinking about doing it. AI is part of the popular zeitgeist, entering our lives in the form of autonomous vehicles on our roads, Alexa in our homes, and a burgeoning AI arms race between rival world powers. Yet despite all the talk, no one really seems to agree on what its real impact will be. In fact, everyone seems to have a different definition for what ‘it’ even is. There are those telling us it’s nothing new and its potential is over-hyped, while others tell us that AI and Machine Learning will make us all redundant.
