Innovatrics is detailing some of the great lengths the company has gone to in order to facilitate document recognition through its identity verification platform.
Calling itself a world leader in reading data from the Thai National Identity Document (NID), the company notes that the complexity of the written Thai language posed special challenges to the training of its optical character recognition (OCR) technology. The Thai alphabet contains 72 letters, for a start. And the Thai NID card doesn’t lacks a standard font size for name fields, due to the variety in lengths and titles of Thai names.
Fortunately, Innovatrics uses advanced neural network models to develop its algorithms, with one result being a Thai NID solution that accurately crop name fields and reliably recognize Thai script, even when low-quality photos are uploaded to Innovatrics’ system.
“Whether it is to onboard new users, fulfill KYC requirements, or activate apps remotely, users need to provide proof of their identity,” the company explained in a statement. “Our OCR technology can accurately capture and extract the personal data of a user without any friction at the comfort of their own home.”
Having this kind of advanced OCR technology in place is critical in the support of Innovatrics’ other solutions that require accurate document reading, such as its selfie-based Digital Onboarding Toolkit, and a similar hotel check-in solution launched last summer.
Other unique alphabets supported by Innovatrics’ OCR technology include Arabic and Cyrillic.
