Frequently asked questions:
Our technology is used to extract all the important information from an ID document. Modern ID document parsers like Affinda's leverage multiple AI neural networks and data science techniques to extract structured data. Typical fields being extracted may include the document number, first name, middle name, last name, date of birth, address — plus much more. Our ID document extraction tools can be integrated into a software platform, to provide near real time automation.
Affinda’s ID document OCR extractor is capable of extracting data from Passports, Driver’s Licenses and Birth Certificates. If you require additional ID documents and fields to be extracted, please reach out to our AI experts.
Good intelligent document processing requires a combination of technologies and approaches.
Our solution uses deep transfer learning in combination with recent open source language models, to segment, section, identify, and extract relevant fields.
We use image-based object detection and proprietary algorithms developed over several years to segment and understand the document, to identify correct reading order, and ideal segmentation.The structural information is then embedded in downstream sequence taggers which perform Named Entity Recognition (NER) to extract key fields.Each document section is handled by a separate neural network.Post-processing of fields to clean up location data, phone numbers and more.Comprehensive skills matching using semantic matching and other data science techniques
OCR stands for Optical Character Recognition. Affinda’s software uses OCR to convert an image that doesn’t have text data — such as a photo of an ID document — into a file that is machine-readable.
All uploaded information is stored in a secure location and encrypted. You can read all the details here.
We export the data from our ID documents in JSON format so that it can be most easily integrated into your platform or database.
