With the new layout feature for Amazon Textract, customers are now able to extract layout elements such as paragraphs and titles from documents, reducing the need to develop and maintain complex post-processing code.
Amazon Web Services (AWS), a cloud computing platform provider, announced September 28 that it has launched a new Layout feature for Amazon Textract, its machine learning (ML) service that automatically extracts text, handwriting and data from scanned documents, images and PDFs.
The new layout feature for Amazon Textract enables customers to extract layout elements such as paragraphs, titles, lists, headers, footers, and more from documents. The feature has already been trained for a variety of documents in financial services, legal, insurance, medical, media, and other industries.
Rahul Gupta, Head of Product and Tech at AWS, commented: “Congrats to the team for launching Amazon Textract Layout, which makes it a breeze to extract reading order, additional elements and metadata to expedite document understanding.”
Headquartered in Seattle, Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides on-demand cloud computing platforms and APIs to individuals, companies, and government. With Amazon Textract, AWS offers a machine learning (ML) service that automatically extracts text, handwriting, and data from scanned documents, images and PDFs.
