PSPDFKit releases XtractFlow Software development company PSPDFKit has announced the release of XtractFlow, its IDP engine powered by generative AI. XtractFlow integrates with LLMs like ChatGPT from OpenAI or Azure OpenAI. Jonathan Rhyne, Co-Founder and CEO at PSPDFKit, said: “Excited to finally publicly release this into the wild. Intelligent data processing has always been hampered by the expense of having to have a human in the loop. Often times this is having a person review extraction results and many times meant having an admin setup an extraction template based on an example document they tagged to ensure accuracy. Now with the combination of our proprietary OCR algorithms and document classification engine paired with OpenAI’s APIs this can be accomplished generically, with natural language, and without a human in the loop accurately. This combination is unique and a step forward in the space in terms of quality. You can integrate it into the application you are building directly with the SDK or call out to our APIs easily.”
