Not sure what’s happening in the market place these days but everyone seems to be rediscovering good old optical character recognition (OCR) as a fun thing to play with. OCR involves the recognition of textual elements in image material such as scanned-in documents or screenshots. We have been commissioned with our third project along those lines now. Specifically, we will be  using advanced machine learning (ML) and natural language processing (NLP) to extract business-critical information from scanned-in documents with utmost precision.
