4:05pm4:45pm Thursday, April 18, 2019
AI Business Summit, Case Studies
Location: Sutton North/Center
Secondary topics:  AI case studies, Data and Data Networks, Text, Language, and Speech

Who is this presentation for?

  • Executives, COOs, chiefs of IT acquisitions, contract specialists, CIOs, and training specialists



Prerequisite knowledge

  • Familiarity with algorithmic data classification and artifact extraction
  • A basic understanding of the business benefits of structured content

What you'll learn

  • Learn how DCL used AI to transform massive volumes of confidential disparate data into searchable and structured information at the US Patent Office


The United States Patent Office (USPTO) experiences a high-volume of patent applications that patent officers must process. Applications comprise a range of data elements, including free text, form fields, handwriting, images, image-based PDFs, and more. The data isn’t searchable or minable for the critical information that the USPTO required to effectively function.

Join Tammy Bilitzky to learn how DCL implemented artificial intelligence to identify, classify, structure, and return large datasets back to the USPTO in a lights-out production process. Spoiler alert: The system continues to achieve a 99.6% accuracy rate with zero human intervention.

Topics include:

  • Considerations when processing a continuous flow of 5M+ “pages” of disparate data
  • The automation method used to extract data from image files to generate XML with a 99% accuracy rate
  • The scalable system with zero human intervention (demanded by confidentiality and budget limitations)
