How OCI Document Understanding works


How Document Understanding works diagram, description below Select data from an OCI Object Storage bucket or a local file from your computer. Use OCI Document Understanding’s built-in models to automatically extract key information. Optionally, customize models to tailor the extraction to your data or use case. Store results in JSON format in the OCI Object Storage output bucket. Lastly, integrate with other OCI services, such as Oracle APEX and OCI Digital Assistant.

Use cases for OCI Document Understanding

Extract document information to store in Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse, and integrate with other structured data or visual data in Oracle Analytics Cloud or other OCI services.

document analytics Select data from an OCI Object Storage input bucket or a local file from your computer. Use OCI Document Understanding’s built-in models to automatically extract key information. Optionally, customize models to tailor the extraction to your data or use case. Then use OCI Data Integration to store document data in Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse and integrate with other structured data. Visualize data in Oracle Analytics Cloud. Use structured data to train new predictive models in OCI Data Science.

Extract key information from documents to populate extracted text, prefill fields, and perform other tasks.
