AI Case Study

US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) automates conversion of manually submitted forms to digital format with 91% accuracy using deep neural networks

The FDA receives 10% of applications in a hand-written format. After employing seasonal contractors to enter these manually into digital format, they have now implemented Captricity's AI powered READ engine to automate conversion of manual forms to digital format. The program is 1000s of times faster and matches human accuracy.
