Intelligent Data Extraction, or IDE, represents the next generation of optical character recognition (OCR) by leveraging the power of the cloud and recent advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). It means taking data from the ordinary to the extraordinary. In reality, organizations not only have access to, but create a wealth of data on a daily basis. It is widely accepted that only 20% of the millions of pieces of data organizations have are in a structured format. What this means for federal agencies is that up to 80% of their data is either analog or in an unstructured format. Agencies are not able to use software to analyze this data—or easily use it in any way to improve its operations or service delivery. OCR can take this unstructured data, whether handwritten or paper, and convert it to useful information to improve services.
The Cloud Adoption CoE facilitated a workshop for USDA technical leaders. The objective was to provide background information and gain stakeholder support for the foundation of the Commercial Cloud Platform Services (CCPS) organization. CCPS is to be the USDA pathway to cloud services and is contingent on the acceptance and participation of all workshop attendees. The workshop was conducted as a collaborative two-day offsite that brought together stakeholders from across OCIO to discuss roles, responsibilities and expectations in conducting next steps. The CCPS is a logical first step for USDA to leverage and harness the commercial cloud marketplace to add value to farmers, ranchers, and producers (consumers) via three primary roles:
