M-Files adds AI tech from ABBYY

M-Files Corporation has announced a partnership with ABBYY, the global provider of intelligent capture, optical character recognition, language-based and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies.

M-Files is integrating ABBYY technology into its ECM platform to improve the way information assets can be categorised, organised and intelligently linked to other relevant data, content and processes.

ABBYY’s AI and natural language processing (NLP) is used to understand text in context. Based on algorithms that analyse the meaning of words and reveal the relationships between them, even complex and unstructured documents can be classified accurately.

"Getting the right information to the right person at the right time is key in today’s fast-paced world, but the majority of content that businesses rely on is unstructured, which hinders businesses from leveraging machine-based processing and automation," said Sven Diedrich, Director Business Unit Technology Licensing at ABBYY Europe.

"Our partnership with M-Files will help businesses harness this valuable unstructured content with simple automatic classification that establishes context and relevance, making it easy for users to quickly transform data into actionable information."
