Are there other names for IDP?

As IDP becomes more popular, there have been many names assigned to the technology. Some include Cognitive Document Processing, Machine Learning OCR (ML OCR), Intelligent Data Extraction, Intelligent Data Capture, Intelligent Data Processing, and more.

While some believe IDP is an extension of OCR, it isn’t. IDP is a replacement for OCR since it is AI-driven and is designed to take a different approach to document processing.
