Rajiv Jain and Chris Tensmeyer (Adobe) “Document Intelligence at Adobe Research”

Visually rich documents (scanned or digital) remain important for many consumer and business use cases. During this talk we will share recent work from our team in the Document Intelligence Lab of Adobe Research to understand, create, and interact with these documents.  First, we’ll share a series of work on building models to decompose and understand the structure of documents to support use cases around document analysis and accessibility. Next, we’ll explore document semantic understanding for a project where we convert natural language contract clauses to code to support business automation. Finally, we’ll discuss DocEdit, a model and dataset that enables editing structured documents from natural language.
