Extract document insights with natural language processing using Amazon Comprehend

Amazon Comprehend is a natural language processing (NLP) service that uses machine learning to find insights and relationships in text without machine learning experience. Examine unstructured data for helpful data - customer emails, support tickets, product reviews, social media, even advertising copy represents insights into customer sentiment that can be put to work for your business.

  • Identify specific items of interest inside vast swathes of text (such as finding company names in analyst reports)
  • Larn the sentiment hidden inside language (negative reviews, or positive customer interactions with service agents)
  • Analyze entities, like people, places, products, dates, events, organizations, quantities, things; languages; and more.
Amazon Textract

Amazon Textract is a service that automatically extracts text and data from scanned documents. Combined with Alfreso's open architecture, Textract provides you with intelligent information processing service that lets you classify data from a mass ingestion of data, faster than imaginable.

Intelligent Document Recognition FAQ

What is Amazon Web Services?

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform, offering over 165 fully featured services from data centers globally. Millions of customers—including the fastest-growing startups, largest enterprises, and leading government agencies—trust AWS to power their infrastructure, become more agile, and lower costs.

What is the purpose of using machine learning to extract data from forms and tables?

Many companies today extract data from scanned documents, such as PDFs, tables, and forms through manual data entry (that is slow, expensive and prone to errors), or through simple OCR software that requires manual configuration which needs to be updated each time the form changes to be usable. To overcome these manual processes, a service like Textract uses machine learning to instantly read and process any type of document, accurately extracting printed text, handwriting, forms, tables and, other data without the need for any manual effort or custom code.

What are some uses for automated extraction of text?

Once you capture information with text extraction, you can take action on it within your business applications - for example - to initiate next steps for insurance claims, customer applications, citizen correspondence,  enrollment forms, or medical claims processing or any scanned data where you can use intelligent document recognition capture.
