Efficient business operations rely heavily on paperwork processing, encompassing a variety of documentation. No proper document categorization can introduce risks and bottlenecks in daily business functions. Imagine working in a bank with an unorganized pile of undefined forms, including home loan applications, new account requests, and demat account details. Handling such a mix demands extensive hours and introduces errors that could adversely affect the business.


Intelligent document processing (IDP)

In the rapidly evolving digital landscape, data is exponentially expanding. Traditional processing workflows may drain resources or require cost-intensive technical expertise. Intelligent document processing is a rising solution that converts data from structured, semi-structured, and unstructured documents into actionable insights. These insights, powered by advanced AI technologies like Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing (NLP), and machine/deep learning, can potentially drive significant business outcomes.

Businesses are exploring IDP solutions to address typical document classification challenges. By using AI and machine learning, these solutions automate processes to assign and categorize documents accurately. This blog delves into document classification, emphasizing how trainable classification AI models can revolutionize traditional business operations.


What is document classification?

Document classification refers to the systematic assignment of a document to specific classes or relevant categories, simplifying its management and analysis. This aids in the efficient storage, organization, and analysis of documents. The process entails identifying text within a document, tagging it, and categorizing it based on insights derived from text classification. Organizations handle a diverse array of documents, each possessing unique attributes. Manual categorization becomes challenging due to the vast volume of items in the current digital landscape. Without solutions akin to Intelligent Document Processing (IDP), companies would need knowledge workers to read documents and extract data, making it time-consuming and error-prone.


Enter trainable AI classification models

Utilizing intelligent document classification techniques involves employing algorithms to categorize documents precisely. Through scanning, identification, sorting, and automatic assignment, documents are placed into specific predefined classifications without requiring manual effort. This transformative capability is driven by trainable AI models that learn from diverse datasets to predict various document types accurately.

Now, let's take a closer look into the AI models that underpin our IDP solution, fueled by our patented Universal Classifier Pipeline, which serves as the foundation of this capability. We'll explore how it can bring benefits to your organization.


Understanding trainable AI models

  1. Universal Classifier Pipeline
    The Universal Classifier Pipeline empowers organizations to train AI models capable of leveraging multiple document attributes to predict the correct document type precisely. This pipeline guarantees the flexibility and adaptability required to manage a variety of document sets.
  2. Democratized training process
    A salient feature that sets our AI classification models apart is the democratized training process. Gone are the days when you required a team of data scientists or coding experts to create and train these models. It can be accomplished with no code or low code, making it accessible to users with varying levels of technical expertise.
  3. High accuracy with few samples
    Trainable AI models can achieve high accuracy even with limited training samples. This implies you can efficiently train a model to classify documents accurately, even with a small dataset.
  4. Customization for any document set
    You can train the models to classify diverse documents, from invoices and contracts to medical records and legal documents. The tool's versatility and adaptability open up endless possibilities.
  5. Predictive power
    Once trained, these models can be employed to predict the document types for which they were trained. This eliminates manual sorting and ensures that documents are categorized correctly.

Benefits of AI-based automated document classification

Now that we've explored AI classification models let's delve into their advantages to your document classification workflow, benefitting daily business operations and the bottom line.
