About the Document Understanding activities


Document Understanding activities are a key component of document processing. It makes full document processing possible by allowing the system to interpret the meaning of a document and extract information from it. You can use document classification and data extraction methods to extract and interpret information from multiple documents with different structures.

At a high level, documents go through five fundamental steps:

  • defining document types and data to be extracted,
  • providing the text and its location,
  • classifying the documents from the specified list,
  • extracting the information,
  • and confirming the extracted data by a human.

Then, the extracted data can be exported and consumed the way you want to.
