re Recognition has been serving the OCR, ICR and pattern recognition needs of clients for over 30 years with KADMOS technology. re Recognition sought to develop a more accurate and faster technology to decipher patterns, notably machine printed text (OCR) and hand written characters (ICR) to meet the needs of a global client base.
Most OCR and ICR technologies use ‘Support Vector Machine’ (SVM) algorithms or ‘Neural Network’ (NN) based learning. KADMOS is different. It is based upon a proprietary algorithm that uses “discriminatory entropy”. This technically superior approach to both ICR and OCR outperforms both SVM and NN working alone or combined.
The proprietary feature extraction is based on the same mathematics as Computer Tomography and captures up to ten times more data points in the symbol or character that needs to be recognised. Then, sophisticated algorithms, embedded in the technology, determine which are the most significant. This means intelligent, accurate decisions can be made fast.
In development KADMOS technology has undergone supervised learning. Before it is allowed to make decisions it needs to see tens of thousands of samples of each character or glyph, then has to practise, practise and more practise; comparing each glyph with every other glyph in the world until it knows what are the obvious and the subtle differences between them. It is this intelligence that makes KADMOS technology so superior at recognising machine print and hand written characters.
Leading the way, the re Recognition team has been able to develop technology that does not need to rely on dictionaries, enabling fast processing speeds in over 200 languages. This passion and commitment to multilingual support means more complex non-Latin texts such as Cyrillic, Greek, Hebrew, Thai and Tamil can be supported. Additional languages are always a feature of the product road map.
Our customers choose re Recognition not only for the exceptional accuracy and speed it can offer them, but also because of our collaborative approach to complex product development. This hands on approach during set up and our highly regarded peer-peer support model means our customers have remained loyal to us.
When needed, our approach is to work in partnership with our clients to support them in developing solutions for bespoke, complex ICR and OCR challenges.
Out team has significant experience of the ICR and OCR needs across a range of markets from finance, education, healthcare, document management and more. With access to our technical specialists, consultants and partners, we can support you in the quest for sophisticated ICR and OCR capabilities.
