Learn about the variety of steps Chief Data Officers are taking to get the most out of the large amounts of data that governments collect.
You have a software package that relies on optical character recognition (OCR) to classify, pick up words, numbers or phrases from a document. As long as the quality of the document is mostly clean, everything works well. However, what happens when the document arrives and the quality is simply, not good? Does the software give up and run away with its tail between its legs? Are there any options to classify or capture anything on these documents?
As it becomes more and more clear that data breaches are a fact of modern day life, it is also clear we need to think about protecting consumer information in more diverse ways.
One way to protect data is to simply redact it. The problem is that the amount and type of information that needs to be redacted is diverse and often changes from state to state.
The Implementation Phase is the third step in proceeding with an automated redaction vendor. If you’re in this phase, you’re close to the go-live for your project.
The first thing that you must do in this phase is collect sample documents. This involves gathering random and targeted sample documents in scope for the redaction project. Once your files and samples are gathered, you must send them to your software vendor.
First came Alien, then Predator, followed by Alien versus Predator. The Alien series chronicles the battle between humans and a mysterious lifeform whose lifecycle has just begun. Predator was based on an extraterrestrial hunter stalking commandos in Central America and the citizens of Los Angeles. When the two series merged, it featured an epic battle between the two legends.
Document formatting and quality can have a dramatic effect on OCR and rules accuracy when data capture is concerned. The 5 examples shown below are meant to educate a potential or current data capture user on what can cause accuracy to rise or fall. Although sometimes it’s hard or impossible to correct the issues that cause accuracy to fall, there are generally steps that can be taken to help prevent them.
