AU10TIX's breakthrough Deep Learning OCR (DL-OCR) offers up to 96% success rates in handling "noisy" graphics-cluttered ID documents.

AU10TIX's new Deep Learning OCR (DL-OCR) has demonstrated considerably better performance in handling documents and languages that are notorious for challenging conventional OCR solutions. AU10TIX's new DL-OCR has been especially designed to handle customer-generated ID images that are typical for online and mobile channels. Such images add another level of difficulty to conventional OCRs as the quality of images created by customers varies significantly from the "textbook" ID templates.

“One cannot underestimate the importance of this breakthrough for online and mobile customer onboarding”, says Ron Atzmon, Managing Director of AU10TIX: “Until now many markets remained practically "Out of the game" for many service-providers and so were many customers. Many ID documents were not designed for machine reaching and many were designed with "noisy background" to make forgery more difficult. Now, when online and mobile, Customer Not Present onboarding involves handling of photos of customer generated ID documents, being able to handle such documents has become a real issue. We are very proud of our R&D team that succeeded in delivering a game changing solution that will make global outreach far simpler than before.”

“Obviously, ID documents were not designed with online and mobile customer onboarding in mind”, says Ofer Friedman, VP Marketing of AU10TIX: “Sure, there are quite a few solutions for OCRing well scanned ID documents but these are a tiny minority of the traffic in online and mobile channels. The same way AU10TIX showed how customer-generated ID images can be authenticated to a forensic level, it now demonstrates how artificial intelligence can change content extraction in borderline quality images and "complicated" language font types. Global markets have just become more open for services where ID authentication matters.”
