UiPath Document Understanding

Using UiPath’s document understanding capabilities, PDFs or images can be read, classified, extracted into a readable format, and then uploaded to the AI Center to be validated. One of our RPA experts walks through UiPath’s Document Understanding features, AI Center, and Validation Station.

Document Understanding is the UiPath product that enables bots to intelligently extract, interpret, and process data from documents. These documents can be a wide range of types from handwritten, scanned images to well-structured PDFs.

AI Center

AI Center is a product that enables you to deploy, consume, manage, and improve machine learning models. This product allows you to choose which ML package you would like to use whether it be a custom-built package, pretrained, or trainable.

Validation Station

Validation Station is an activity in UiPath used when a document requires human validation. Within the UiPath Studio code, the process can be set up to send a document to Validation Station for any condition you want to define. Usually, this condition is when a required field is missing from the extraction, or the extraction is below a certain confidence level. This activity can be implemented with Action Center within UiPath Orchestrator to pause the processing of one invoice and continue with the remainder. Then once the invoice waiting in Action Center is validated, it will complete the rest of the job.

UiPath Version 2021.6

With the current state of Document Understanding and Action Center, it is not possible to fully automate the retraining of a machine learning package. A developer is required to take the human validated data, upload that data to Data Manager, and then export the data in a new format. The newly formatted data is then used by the developer to run a pipeline to train the machine learning package.
