PLANET AI launches IDA 5.2 with multiple new features IDP vendor PLANET AI has announced the launch of IDA 5.2, the latest version of its Intelligent Document Analysis software suite. IDA 5.2 introduces several new features, including zero-shot data extraction based on Large Language Models (LLMs). To prevent AI hallucinations, the extracted data is cross-verified with the captured text. Jesper Kleinjohann, CEO of Planet AI, explained: “The LLM-based data extraction feature, now in beta with IDA 5.2, is a revolution in document processing. We use advanced language models, which have become well-known to everyone since the introduction of ChatGPT. However, our technology is specialized in analytical tasks, thus precisely extracting existing data from documents. It identifies relevant information through a deep understanding of context – a capability that goes far beyond conventional approaches, providing our partners and customers with a decisive added value in document processing.” In addition, IDA 5.2 introduces a recognition SDK to optimize document capture and processing with advanced OCR and ICR technology, as well as a redaction feature that allows to securely redact sensitive entities from JSON and PDF output.

Tungsten Automation unveils TotalAgility 8 with Generative AI-powered Copilots Intelligent automation solutions provider Tungsten Automation has announced the release of TotalAgility 8, the latest version of its flagship platform. At the heart of TotalAgility 8 is the suite of three Generative AI-powered Copilots that provide an intuitive, natural language interface that simplifies the creation of workflows and solutions: Copilot for Development (transforms ideas into working processes, case definitions, forms, business rules, and data models), Copilot for Extraction (reduces the time and effort required to create and manage document extraction models), and Copilot for Insights (generates real time and actionable insights from proprietary business and case data). In addition, TotalAgility 8 introduces Document Libraries, a repository of out-of-the-box extraction models for a variety of use cases across industries, so customers no longer need to build them from scratch, as well as enhanced capabilities that foster collaboration between developers and democratize solution design.

Rossum introduces Rossum Aurora with its proprietary Large Language Model IDP vendor Rossum has announced the launch of Rossum Aurora, its next-generation AI engine specifically for transactional business documents such as invoices, packing lists, bills of lading and purchase orders. The Transactional Large Language Model (T-LLM) built by Rossum was trained on one of the world’s largest datasets in the industry, its own DocILE (Document Information Localization and Extraction), resulting in “human-level accuracy with enterprise-grade safety”, according to the IDP vendor. Albane Flamant, Director of Product Marketing at Rossum, explained: “When it comes to transactional document automation, there is no time for chatting to your documents or crafting complex prompts, no space for Gen AI hallucinations and data leaks. Documents need to be handled accurately, quickly and safely across the journey – from data capture to discrepancy communication – which is just not possible to achieve when using 3rd party LLMs.”
