NCSC Highlights Redaction Technology Advancements

Last month the National Center for State Courts (NCSC) coordinated an Automated Redaction Proof of Concept (PoC) with several vendors. 

The PoC was made possible thanks to funding from the State Justice Institute (SJI).  The purpose was to provide accuracy benchmarks to courts considering implementing automated redaction technology. NCSC is planning to issue results prior to CTC, publish on their website, and present to various target groups and at conferences.

It’s easy to mistake Optical Character Recognition (OCR) as a one-trick pony. 

After all, pulling text out of an image to make it usable in other applications is an impressive trick.  Don’t be content to think that’s all OCR can do for you though.  By combining OCR output with other technologies, it’s possible to make substantial improvements to workflows throughout an organization.  Incoming document workflows are the first and most obvious place that OCR can make a major impact.

OCR and How It Impacts Your Life

OCR (also known as Optical Character Recognition) is defined as the mechanical or electronic conversion of images that are typed, handwritten or printed text into machine-coded text.  The technology deals with the problem of recognizing and converting all different types of characters into text your computer can read.

I can guarantee that anybody reading this blog uses machine learning dozens of times each day without even realizing it. When you perform a web, search usingGoogle or Bing, for instance, the search engine works so well because their software has figured out how to predict searches and rank pages for you.

4 Things You Didn’t Know About e-Filing

Last month I shared my experience at the NCSC Industry Summit.  One of the major changes I’ve witnessed with the courts over the last ten years is the transition to e-filing.  Whether limited to select case types, mandatory, or optional – e-filing is transforming the courts. E-filing vendors continue to enhance the services they provide to streamline the process for filers and courts.
