OCR AND ICR

SAGE is a platform for optimizing the learning of computers and people. It includes NLU, Text recognition and ATS (automatic simplification of texts, automatic translation into a variety of languages and machine language, individual adjustment of the language, selection of appropriate vocabulary and wording of short sentences in simple linguistic and conceptual language, clear, unambiguous and easy to understand for people and computers). Computers learn to read and understand (humanly) documents, data, content and images.

SAGE includes the most advanced and accurate technology for automatic text recognition : OCR, ICR (handwriting recognition) , Image Recognition,  Data Capture, text and image analysis and Screens Reader . SAGE runs machine learning, Artificial Intelligence and semantic search engines on the fly.  SAGE learns to read and understand images, handwriting and text , allowing it to automate any process. SAGE automatically recognizes and captures text from computer screens, converts images to text with high-speed and high-quality.

SAGE is changing the game. Manual data entry is quickly becoming outdated. SAGE reduces time and costs, while increasing accuracy and productivity. It recognizes text from any document or image and solves the manual data entry chore required for capturing data from documents. The output is highly accurate. It is also used in pattern recognition and computerized typesetting. SAGE imitates intelligent human behavior, utilizing artificial neural networks and recognizes the underlying relationships in sets of data that mimic the way the human mind operates. Invoices have a very high variability. Billions of invoices are issued each year in America and Europe alone. To extract data from all of these invoices, it would either require endless manual data entry tasks, or an insane amount of time spent setting up rules and templates for each field, varying for each vendor (as with others OCR). SAGE learns to work for all business documents as well, and does not require the same set up of rules or templates, working from day 1. SAGE is highly accurate and adapts to all kinds of layouts . SAGE is the most accurate OCR.  In practice, users can just go ahead and extract data from invoices using SAGE without any code. And best of all, using ML , the accuracy only gets better.

SAGE automatically recognizes the type of images to be processed and chooses the most appropriate analyzing and recognition technology using recognition rules, keywords, advanced color-processing capabilities, artificial intelligent and sophisticated learning algorithms. Because of its ability to “learn,” SAGE learns to recognize new and previously unseen images and documents, thus efficiency improves over time. SAGE automatically verifies and completes images and fields and unrecognized  images and data, with the help of search engines , data dictionaries, recognition rules and enterprise content, to obtain the highest level of accuracy. SAGE is the only engine that can analyze and understand  images, sentences and paragraphs.

SAGE enables automatic data extraction from images, semi-structured forms and documents. It contains two types of elements: simple elements (e.g. static text, separator, white gap, barcode, character string, text fragment, object collection and date) and compound elements joined by AND.  SAGE pre-recognition process automatically detects objects such as pictures, text, separators, barcodes, inverted text, square checkmarks . SAGE has properties, which describe the geometrical position and relationship between elements of the images. Such description is visualized, so the user may set properties in graphic dialogs and controls. When SAGE is mapping the image, it formulates a series of assumptions about the detected objects corresponding to the elements, for all the created elements. The assumptions are ranked by their quality .The program estimates how well the detected object matches the description contained in SAGE and penalizes poor matches. The assumptions are arranged in a tree-like structure, mapping out the relationships between SAGE elements and possible assumptions. When matching the recognition rules with images, the program selects the best branch in the tree of assumptions, which includes all the described elements, from first to last. This provides a visual of the structure for the users allowing them to see how the program selects the best match and adjusts SAGE to achieve the matching.

Some objects can be specified as optional. For example, if SAGE does not find an optional object, instead of assuming that the image cannot be matched, the program will advance a null hypothesis and assume that there is no such object on the image. If an element is not optional, it can be used as an identifier of the type of image . This allows SAGE to choose automatically the best template from the variety of templates available in the batch in case of multi-type images processing.  

SAGE provide a wide range of options for export of recognition results, including different levels of image reconstruction: A set of different levels of pictures and text format retention during export to external formats (from simple text with no formatting to complete page layout retention, including columns, tables, frames, fonts, font size, paragraph styles, borders, etc.) ; Provide access to detailed information about each recognized character; A set of functions to post-editing and post-formatting of the recognized image before it’s exporting ; Export recognized text into XML formats; Retaining full-page layout of documents; Replace certain characters with their corresponding images when saving in PDF format ; Retain picture and text color in full. 

SAGE  supports  OCR, 1D barcodes, 2D barcodes, Image, logo, handwriting and free text recognition and analyzing. SAGE enables automatic finding and recognizing barcodes at any angle on a document, both for 1D and 2D barcodes. SAGE is the ideal solution for data entry on cellular handsets, touch screens, tablets, smart boards, touch pads, digital pens, and other devices that deliver electronic ink. Composing SMS messages or surfing the Internet is far easier using SAGE and digital pens than any other available method. Users do not need to learn a special set of characters, and no user training is required. They can write anywhere on the screen in their own handwriting.

SAGE enables users to “write” digitally (using a finger, a stylus,a mouse or another input device), record this digital ink, convert it to meaningful information (text, shapes, mathematical expressions), search, edit , share and sign . SAGE enables natural, intuitive human-machine interfaces , recognizes text in a variety of ways and adapts to users’ unique style and preferences. SAGE is  suited for highly structured data capture (such as digital forms), and free-format handwriting—including a mix of text, shapes, mathematical expressions. SAGE  supports recognition of all Windows languages. It automatically indexes handwritten text to make it easily searchable ; Learn individual users’ unique writing style and habits for faster and reliable interpretation; Analyze handwriting in real time and suggest options to complete a word or phrase  and accurately analyze pages containing a mix of handwritten shapes, diagrams and text.

SAGE enables full and original signature on online and mobile documents (finger, mouse, pen) for all types of applications and clearing.

SAGE  analyzes and identifies a wide variety of shapes, such as circles, lines, arrows, parallelograms, and triangles.  This creates vast possibilities for real-world applications, from simple (standardizing geometric drawings) to highly sophisticated and specialized (creating digital diagrams, geometry education, programming connected equipment, enhancing graphic design tools).

SAGE allows users to capture and use handwritten notes on a touchscreen device, enabling advanced document management functionality: Create and store digital notes on computers ; Search handwritten notes as easily as digital text documents; Convert text, math equations, and diagrams to digital information ; Support communication and collaboration with seamless document sharing. SAGE allows for seamless integration of captured text into ERP systems.

SAGE is creating endless possibilities to deliver a more engaging and effective educational experience.  SAGE makes handwritten notes easier to search, edit, and share, revolutionizing everything from note-taking in class to completing assignments and collaborating on group projects.  SAGE text, math and shape recognition technology can : capture and calculate equations using handwritten figures, from simple problems to complex formulas ; Streamline research with immediate reference links and resources, simply by selecting a handwritten word or phrase ; Learn foreign languages, with integrated lexicons and immediate feedback ; Complete worksheets, quizzes and tests, and other forms, and make assessments such as submitting, grading, and returning paperwork much easier and quicker. 

Bar codes linear one-dimensional can only hold up to 20 numerical digits, whereas two-dimensional (2D) matrix barcodes can hold thousands of alphanumeric characters of information.SAGE can create barcodes that hold even more information – millions of alphanumeric characters. So much that an Internet connection is not even necessary.  The content can effectively be embedded in the code.  Users can scan SAGE code to manifest physical reality. SAGE can automatically activate phone functions including email and SMS and link automatically customers to suppliers websites for automatic transactions (service, orders, sales, tenders) even if the customer is not connected to the internet. 

SAGE is the global pioneer in connecting intelligent searching, mobile OCR , barcode reading, advanced image recognition , TV remote signals recognition and mobile internet. SAGE links the physical world with the mobile web, helping media, advertising and marketing companies reach millions of consumers with effective campaigns, better ad performance and automatic transactions (automatic response to RFI or RFP or automatic orders). Mobile operators benefit from Data generated from their subscriber base, the interactive capability of their medium and new data service models.

Advertising and Automation

SAGE incorporates highly intuitive and simple barcode, logo, image and music recognition and powerful advertising and marketing automation, including intelligent agents and automatic data input to the CRM system and reporting tools.SAGE automates the mobile campaign performance, from planning through to integration and automatic execution.

SAGE makes it easier and faster for consumers to access multimedia and mobile internet content. It offers a quick and simple way for mobile subscribers to access mobile web or trigger intelligent agents, eliminating the need to enter long mobile web addresses or response details. A user having a simple TV remote or mobile camera phone equipped with reader software can scan the image (logo) or 2D barcode (QR) causing the phone browser to launch and direct to intelligent agents on mobile websites. SAGE automatically chats with the user, activates the CRM, inserts the consumer details to the CRM, and offers him products, services, discounts, coupons, deals, lotteries, pictures, video, audio or other content according to the chat. Barcodes are displayed on various forms of media such as printed media, TV, billboards, digital screens, books and product packaging.

After QR started popping up in local shopping malls, strip malls (Best Buy), billboards (Calvin Klein), and in the media (CNN), it is hard not to notice. All of the exposure has been great to instill curiosity for consumers and curious passersby to scan the codes with their Smartphone to see what lies on the other side of Alice’s rabbit hole. SAGE adds automation to QR utilities. Examples:  Automated video optimization for mobile screens, how to put together furniture you just bought,  how to properly use tools and products, how to use that software feature .

On products, for companies to share their green message/certification/initiatives.

On food and medicine packaging, to list useful information like ingredients and Expiration Dates.  On medicine bottles to list useful information like possible drug interactions. On medicine bottles to automate order refills.

On real estate signs – virtual tours. Offer mobile coupons, deals and lotteries. Links to intelligent agents (chat and speech), FAQs, user groups, or instructional videos on technical documentation. In the owner’s manual to automate order replacement parts. On airport signage to automate rebooking.

No other advertising medium offers the reach and impact of television. By making us laugh or tugging at our heartstrings, TV commercials deliver a brand’s messaging in powerful, effective ways. But in seconds that message is over. As consumers, we are left to continue the story ourselves, to hopefully remember the commercial when it’s time to seek out the product or make a purchase decision. SAGE enables us to continue the advertisement, to get more information on second-screen interaction and make a purchase, while still sitting on the couch. 70% of those consumers interact with their mobile devices while watching television. SAGE enables us to utilize the reach and impact of TV and extend its reach to give depth to the content people are interested in. SAGE connects suppliers to their target audience in impactful, convenient and innovative ways.
