The Dawn of Cognitive Capture

Document capture – digitally converting the information on a page to machine-readable data – has been around in one form or another for over 100 years. 

In the past several years, boosted by artificial intelligence and machine learning, OCR techniques have improved to be able to not just recognize characters, but also read text, understand it, place it into context, and subsequently trigger work activities.

This white paper provides background on the evolution of document capture from traditional to cognitive capture, explores the case for cognitive capture meeting ever-evolving needs, and outlines new market opportunities.

Included in this white paper:

  • A brief history of document capture
  • Traditional document capture vs. Cognitive capture
  • Cognitive capture’s new markets
