Smart document understanding (SDU) allows you to train IBM Watson Discovery to interpret structural elements of complex and diverse documents, including document fields like footers and headlines as well as tables and text. Visually annotate a sampling of your documents and instantly visualize how the machine learning model will interpret your text, updating your model in real time to achieve the desired results. Use this feature across roles and use cases to reduce the time experts spend reviewing and analyzing complex documents without compromising accuracy or increasing risks. Smart document understanding in IBM Watson Discovery helps you rapidly extract new insights in context for deeper understanding, cleaner answers, and confident recommendations.
