Infrrd Research Lab Wins First Place in NeurIPS 2022 Competition for Natural Language Processing

December 8, 2022

San Jose, Calif. …December 8, 2022 … Infrrd, a leading provider of Intelligent Document Processing (IDP) solutions, announced today that the research conducted by Infrrd’s Research Lab has won the Natural Language for Optimization (NL4Opt) 2022 competition. This annual workshop is hosted by Neural Information Processing Systems, a non-profit corporation that fosters the exchange of research advances in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.

In this year’s competition, Natural Language Processing (NLP) research teams across the world were tasked with investigating the best methods to automate the conversion of text descriptions into proper formulations for optimization solvers. The problem was further broken into two parts. First, to find an intelligent solution to detect problem entities from the text, and second, to generate a precise meaning representation.

Infrrd’s AI Research Lab took part in the competition and solved both the sub-tasks. The solution methodology presented by Infrrd’s team of researchers JiangLong He, Mamatha N., Shiv Vignesh, Deepak Kumar, and Akshay Uppal outperformed all other methodologies presented in the Named Entity Recognition sub-task.

The team succeeded in identifying problem entities from the problem statement with their innovative approach, entitled, “A System for Named Entity Recognition Using Data Augmentation Transformer-Based Sequence Labeling Model, and EnsembleCRF.”

As part of the recognition earned by the Research Lab, the team was asked to present their approach at the NeuIPS conference in New Orleans on December 8, 2022. JiangLong He from the Infrrd Research Lab represented Infrrd’s research done by him and the team.

“Our research team is striving to perfect named entity recognition which is a key element of building intelligence into document processing. We’re honored to receive this recognition, which is a validation of how Infrrd’s NLP research is blazing the trails in the IDP space,” said Pratyusha Rasamsetty, head of Infrrd’s Research Lab.

Frequently asked questions

What does your pricing model look like?

We price based on the annual volume of pages and complexity of document type.  We can get you preliminary pricing once we outlined a solution.  Let's do this.

How can I try Infrrd before I commit to a full deployment?

Sure.  The first step is to schedule a guided demo where you get to jump into the thick of it.  After you explore our solution you can try a proof of concept. When you're ready, you can deploy the system to one use case.  Then more use cases.  Then across your enterprise.

How does your system integrate with others in my enterprise?

We play nice.  Our solutions are API-based.  Your documents are feed into the solution using APIs. And extracted data is sent out through APIs.  We use REST APIs.

Does Infrrd run on mobile or desktop device?

Glad you asked.  Our data extraction process runs on servers.  We have found performance and accuracy decline when running on a desktop or mobile device. (Remember Infrrd is running a powerful AI stack).

Does your system work out of the box or does it require training?

Common documents and use cases work out of the box.  The cool thing is your solution will improve as the system learns from your documents upfront and over time.

How does your solution handle corrections?

Did you know no system is 100% accurate all the time?  When extraction errors occur you want to correct them.  We provide a simple UI that your business analyst will use to make corrections.
