Throwing Away the Manual | Ike Kavas from Ephesoft

The potential of computing technology is so vast, we will continuously realize new possibilities that change the way we work, travel, play, and create. But we should not lose sight of the computer’s most central purpose—to make life easier.

So why do they often make life so much harder? One area that’s especially pernicious is document management. Computers are great at creating documents—so much so, in fact, you probably have hundreds-of-thousands if not millions of documents on your hard drive right now.

But processing the data in those documents can take enough manual clicks to give you carpal tunnel. Ike Kavas, the founder and CEO of Ephesoft, believes we should be replacing manual with automated wherever possible.

On this edition of UpTech Report, Ike tells us how his startup is automating document processing, and walks us through some of the major technological challenges the solution faces.
