  • Publication number: 20210103695
    Abstract: Certain embodiments involve transforming an electronic document into a tagged electronic document. For instance, an electronic document processing application generates a tagged electronic document from an input electronic document. The electronic document processing application accesses one or more feature maps that identify, via a set of object-recognition rules, identified objects in the electronic document. The electronic document processing application also obtains a heat map of the electronic document that represents attributes in a pixel-wise manner. The electronic document processing application computes a tag by applying a fusion deep learning model to the one or more feature maps and the heat map. The electronic document processing application generates the tagged electronic document by applying the tag to the electronic document.

  • Patent number: 10878173
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a computing system computes tags for an electronic document. The computing system identifies sets of objects for the electronic document by applying a set of object-recognition rules to the electronic document, with each object-recognition rule generating a set of identified objects. The computing system generates feature maps that represent a set of identified objects. The computing system generates a heat map that identifies attributes of the electronic document including object candidates of the electronic document by applying a page-segmentation machine-learning model to the electronic document. The computing system computes a tag by applying a fusion deep learning module to the feature map and the heat map to correlate a document object identified by the feature map with an attribute of the electronic document identified by the heat map. The computing system generates the tagged electronic document by applying the tag to the electronic document.
