WhitePaper: Document Understanding - A Short Guide on the Major Process Steps

Document Understanding

Document Understanding (DU) is one of the fastest-growing areas in business process automation. The DU ecosystem includes technologies that can interpret and extract text and meaning from a wide range of document types including structured, semi-structured and unstructured — even ones that contain handwriting, tables and checkboxes.

In this article we present the major steps in the DU process and the underlying architecture with reference specifically to UiPath’s Document Understanding framework.

Multiple technologies can unlock the power of document understanding such as:

  • Optical Character Recognition (OCR)
  • Template bases Extractors (TBEs)
  • Supervised-learning-based machine learning extractors (SMLEs)
  • Natural language processing (NLP)
