UiPath Document Understanding

Teach robots to process documents using artificial intelligence


Wouldn’t it be great if software robots could understand documents? To extract, interpret, and process data for you, even from PDFs, images, handwriting, and scans?
Document Understanding helps your robots do just that. Delegate more of your digital paperwork, with a boost from AI. Play Video Button

Automate more processes— from start to finish

Before Document Understanding, automated workflows required humans to step in and process documents manually. Now you can teach robots to handle an entire process. Humans only need to check in to validate data or handle exceptions.


Process a wide range of documents

Your documents come in many layouts and formats. Some have a fixed form; others are free-form. They might have handwriting, checkboxes, or signatures. UiPath Robots can handle it all.

Make bots resilient with machine learning models

Intelligent document processing calls for highly intelligent robots, so we use machine learning models to enhance your bots with AI. Plus, models will get more accurate over time, so the entire process will get more efficient.


Cancel document 'noise'

Document ‘noise’—rotated, skewed, unrelated, or low-resolution documents—can fluster some robots. But not ours.
