Document understanding with the Functional Extension Parser (FEP) Software Platform

Speaker: Günter Mühlberger, University of Innsbruck

In the framework of the EU FP7 Project IMPACT the University Innsbruck developed a software framework that is optimised for enriching digitised or born digital documents with new (meta)data that are generated on the basis of artificial intelligence. This document understanding platform, called Functional Extension Parser (FEP), comes with several modules for ingesting documents, processing them with the support of a rules engine (JESS), visualising and editing the results and finally exporting the results in standardised formats. FEP is accomplished with an evaluation tool that allows to compare actual results with golden standard data (ground truth) in order to allow the efficient creation of new rules.
