Computer vision is a category of A.I. that enable robots to “see” content, analyse that content and extrapolated data, so as to understand the make-up and context of images and video for processing by automation robots.
We use Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services: Computer Vision as a state-of-the-art service to deploy the capability to process and analyse images.
This allows one to analyse images for insight for business cases such as advanced optical character recognition (OCR), extracting text from images, hand written content and categorisation of images.
This is particularly useful for dealing with unstructured business content for the automation of typical business processes - both client-facing and back office. Text-heavy activities such as invoices, contracts, credit agreements and reconciliations are good candidates for automation.
