An intro to Microsoft Form Recognizer

Forms, Forms, Forms. Many organisations still receive information in the form of hand-written or scanned in paper forms. The manual transposing of this information into computer systems is very slow and is fraught with the possibility of manual error. Although OCR technologies have been around for some time, they have traditionally been very expensive to implement and maintain. Microsoft Azure now provides Form Recognizer capabilities in cognitive services, which makes automatic form data consumption much easier. In this session, Craig will introduce you to form recognizer and demonstrate how easy it is to get started.
