In today’s data-driven world, organizations often find themselves grappling with the challenges of efficiently handling and analyzing large volumes of documents. The conventional approaches to document processing are time-consuming, error-prone, and often fail to scale effectively. However, AWS offers transformative solution on the horizon using existing AWS AI/ML services to provide Intelligent Document Processing (IDP).

The Synergy of Intelligent Document Processing and Generative AI

Document classification, data extraction, and analysis are complex tasks for organizations dealing with large data volumes, life science, financial institutions, media, etc. Traditional manual methods often lead to errors, inefficiency, and scalability challenges. Intelligent Document Processing (IDP) aims to address these issues by integrating AI services such as Amazon Textract with other AI/ML service from AWS i.e. Amazon SageMaker. This integration harnesses the power of cutting-edge machine learning (ML) technology to swiftly and precisely process data from various documents and images.

Generative AI takes this integration a step further, offering automation enhancements to document processing workflows. This entails features like standardizing key fields and summarizing input data, which not only expedite document processing cycles but also minimize potential errors by applying relevant Foundation Model (FM) that can be trained on the company’s own data using Amazon BedRock.

The Role of Foundation Models in Generative AI

Generative AI is powered by large ML models called FMs. These models are pivotal in transforming complex document processing workloads. In addition to the existing capabilities, businesses require the ability to summarize specific categories of information, such as financial data from documents like bank statements. FMs facilitate the generation of insights from extracted data. This significantly optimizes human review time, enhances employee productivity, and even automates the flagging of errors, all of which would otherwise demand considerable manual effort.

Amazon Bedrock and Amazon SageMaker JumpStart

AWS offers services like Amazon Bedrock, providing the simplest way to build and scale generative AI applications with FMs. This managed service makes FMs from both leading AI startups and Amazon accessible through APIs, ensuring a perfect fit for your unique requirements. Furthermore, Amazon SageMaker JumpStart empowers ML practitioners by offering a wide array of open-source Foundation Models. These models can be deployed to dedicated Amazon SageMaker instances, facilitating model training, deployment, and customization.

Enhancing the IDP Pipeline

The integration of Foundation Models augments the traditional IDP pipeline, revolutionizing the classification, extraction, and enrichment stages. In the classification stage, FMs categorize documents with unmatched accuracy, even without prior exposure to similar examples. FMs in the extraction stage normalize data and verify information while maintaining consistent formatting. FMs in the enrichment stage enable logical reasoning, summarization, and inference, streamlining the entire IDP workflow.

Serverless Implementation with AWS Services

Serverless services such as AWS Lambda, AWS Step Functions, and Amazon EventBridge offer seamless automation of the IDP pipeline. These services facilitate the creation of a serverless solution for IDP, ensuring the automation of complex document processing tasks.


The integration of Generative AI with IDP ushers in a new era of efficient, accurate, and automated document processing. By leveraging FMs and AWS services, organizations can streamline their workflows, enhance productivity, and derive valuable insights from their data. The synergy between AI and document processing is transforming industries, empowering businesses to embrace a future of smarter, more efficient operations.

Combining this with KeyCore’s AWS life science competencies we predict a significant opportunity for life science customers in combining AWS services aimed at life science like i.e., AWS Comprehend Medical to enable a more efficient IDP for life science organizations.
