  • Covis – extracting tabular data from images


    Summary:

    Singularium digitizes large numbers of tabular invoices to generate timely market insights in a very dynamic FMCG market. Covis is one of the cornerstones in this process. A proprietary image processing engine delivering high quality outputs – it can automate the digitization of images of invoices, receipts, catalogues, scorecards, menus & surveys among others.

    * Currently, Covis is fine-tuned for printed/handwritten invoices and is available for testing in beta.


    Optical character readers (OCRs) are widely deployed as a form of information entry from printed paper data records.

    The latest OCRs are cutting edge Neural Nets that recognize characters and demonstrate high levels of accuracy & consistency even as they continue to evolve.

    Google’s Vision, Microsoft’s Azure, Amazon’s Textract are some of the best in the business right now.

    Covis:

    Covis is a hybrid engine that can extract tabular data present in images. A key feature is the engine’s ability to determine table structure without explicit lines marking rows & columns. A Neural Net combined with proprietary HATS (Heuristic Algorithm for Table Structures) resolves the structure while a combination of commercial & in-house trained OCRs reads the text.

    The pre-processing of the image coupled with intelligent resolution of differential outputs from the combination OCR helps increase accuracy significantly. The engine demonstrates a 10% – 15% enhancement in reading accuracy while reducing post-processing effort in structuring the data. The video below highlights the mechanics behind Covis.

    Watch – A Pepsico invoice digitized to 98% read accuracy v/s a maximum of 85% from commercial OCRs

    • Google Vision
    • Abbyy FineReader
    • Microsoft Azure
    • Amazon Textract
    • Tesseract

    Accuracy measured using Levenshtein edit distance

    2. Table Structure Determination :
    A 50 Layer Convolutional Neural Net with ResNET Architecture was trained specially for FMCG invoices. The Heuristic algorithm looks for generic patterns in an image to identify possible rows & columns. The outputs from the 2 modules are combined to generate the structure.
