DATAFLUCT Co., Ltd.
DATAFLUCT’s data platform “AirLake” is system-linked with Toshiba Digital Solutions’ “AI OCR character recognition service” and “RECAIUS knowledge platform”
Combining character recognition and natural language processing to realize a one-stop service from reading document data to organizing, sharing, and utilizing it.
DATAFLUCT Co., Ltd. (Headquarters location: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, CEO: Hayato Kumemura, hereinafter DATAFLUCT), which solves corporate and social issues with data science, aggregates various internal and external data and unstructured data Our no-code cloud data platform “AirLake”[*2], which has strengths in structuring[*1], and Toshiba Digital Solutions Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Kawasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture, President: Shunsuke Okada, hereinafter Toshiba Digital Solutions) will start linking with “AI OCR character recognition service [*3]” and “RECAIUS knowledge platform [*4]” from today. In this collaboration, various data such as forms and paper documents accumulated in “AirLake” will be converted and sorted into digital formats that are easy to use in business using “AI OCR character recognition service” and “RECAIUS knowledge platform”. and accumulate in “AirLake” again. This makes it easier to analyze and utilize the data afterward, contributing to problem solving and operational efficiency.
For example, when used for maintenance and inspection of equipment in the manufacturing industry, the “AI OCR character recognition service” can be used to convert documents and paper documents such as equipment inspection reports aggregated in “AirLake” into text, including free handwritten description fields. Automatic sorting improves the efficiency of inspection result input work. In addition, the RECAIUS Knowledge Platform extracts and accumulates the characteristics of each case from the data in the free-text column, making it easier to search for similar cases. As a result, it will be possible to perform one-stop processing from reading document data to organizing, sharing, and utilizing it, including free handwritten descriptions that were difficult to utilize in the past, contributing to shortening the response time and early resolution when equipment problems occur. is also expected.
This cooperative system can be used in a variety of industries that handle paper documents, including free handwritten descriptions, such as manufacturing, insurance, construction, and infrastructure. [Image 1
Background of collaboration
Our company and Toshiba Digital Solutions will start collaborating through the “Toshiba OPEN INNOVATION PROGRAM 2020 [*5]” held by Toshiba Corporation in 2020, and in April 2021, we will develop a “machine that optimizes store-by-store visitor forecasts.” In March 2022, we signed a capital and business alliance agreement to develop the efforts of both companies [*8].
In this system collaboration, DATAFLUCT will receive various technical elements owned by Toshiba Digital Solutions as solution parts, commercialize them as new data utilization services, and quickly provide them to a wide range of markets to help customers grow and succeed. It will be the first collaborative effort after the capital and business alliance, which will be realized.
Details of linked services
1. Cooperation with “AI OCR character recognition service”
After storing paper documents that have been digitized using a multifunction device, etc. in “AirLake”, the documents are read and converted into data by linking with the “AI OCR character recognition service”. In addition to the function of reading handwritten characters including strikethroughs and balloons, as well as the function of reading the entire page, the function of identifying various types of forms, and the workflow function that can flexibly set the number of corrections and checks, etc. contributes to the efficiency of operations. In addition, the read data is accumulated in “AirLake” and can be used for various data analysis.
-Usage example- (Business: Read target)
■ All industries
・Quotation appraisal: Quotation, invoice
・Quality control, safety control: accident report, near-miss report ・Customer service: records of inquiries

2. Cooperation with the RECAIUS Knowledge Platform
It is a service that contributes to shortening the response time and early resolution when incidents occur mainly during the operation and operation of factories, facilities, and provided services.
After structuring and analyzing text and voice data such as past incident reports, facility operation and operation manuals, sensor data, and Q&As stored in “AirLake”, they are classified and organized by device, defect, site, treatment, and cause. and manage them as a series of episodes. When an incident occurs, you can search for it using keywords such as location and cause, and you can compare the accumulated cases with the current situation based on the episode, and quickly obtain effective countermeasures even without past knowledge. the next deployment
