Advanced Technology in Action

AI-Driven Table Detection

We utilize cutting-edge AI to identify table regions accurately. DICE, our proprietary OCR engine ensures high accuracy across diverse document types.

Adaptive Structure Recognition

Our system is designed to handle varied table layouts and formats, adapting to the unique structures of each document to extract data accurately.

Smart Post-Processing

Ensuring data accuracy is paramount. We employ intelligent validation and correction, applying data validation rules and removing unnecessary characters to maintain high-quality outputs. We add a layer of human-in-the-loop validation to facilitate accurate output and adaptive learning for the OCR engines.

Detailed Process of Table Extraction from PDF

Step 1: Document Upload and Categorization

  • Document Import: Users can upload documents from their local device or via email attachments for seamless document intake.
  • Document Categorization: DICE categorizes documents using pre-trained models and APIs for efficient classification.

Step 2: Optical Character Recognition (OCR)

  • Cloud-Based OCR Engines: Dice extracts data from PDFs utilizing next-gen AI powered OCR engines that are pre-trained on varying table formats

Step 3: Table and Forms Extraction

  • Commercial Forms and Tables Extraction:
    • Dice AI Forms and Tables: Uses pre-trained models to extract structured data from tables and forms.

Step 4: Data Validation and Cleaning

  • Smart Post-Processing:
    • Data Validation and Cleaning: Ensures extracted data meets accuracy and consistency standards.
    • QA Validation and Correction: Compares extracted data with existing data or rules, using tools like reverse rubber banding and zoom for precision. An additional layer of human-in-the-loop validation is employed to ensure near 100% accuracy each time a table is processed.

Step 5: Scalability and Performance

  • Optimized Processing Architecture:
    • Distributed Processing: Utilizes multiple servers for parallel document processing.
    • Performance Monitoring and Optimization: Tracks system performance metrics and optimizes components.
    • Queueing Mechanism: Manages document processing requests to prevent overload.

Step 6: Reporting and Analytics

  • Comprehensive Reporting Tools:
    • Documents Summary Dashboard: Provides a summary of document processing using filters like name, date range, SLA, and status.
    • User Analytics Dashboard: Offers reports on total documents processed, completed, pending, and exceptions.
    • Quality Report Dashboard: Visualizes document quality metrics.

Step 7: Integration and User Management

  • Seamless Integration: Ensures smooth data transfer and scalability with existing systems.
  • User Management and Access Control: Controls access to different modules based on user roles for secure management.
