Paragon does not use any third-party Cloud Services or APIs for our AI enabled applications. We made
the decision three years ago that AI is a science we need to understand and master, right down to the
algorithms that we use for our convolutional networks. We believe the use of artificial intelligence will
continue to grow at an exponential pace and will present a technical revolution that goes far beyond the
ability of conventional technical solutions engineered in the past, and we want a prominent place within
that technical shift.
We also believe that our customers should be able to improve existing AI models and build new models
without relying on the services of Paragon or another party, therefore we have integrated an entity
labeling system (annotator) into DocuShield that is comprehensive and easy to use.
DocuShield Redaction Software has two engines for completing the redaction process, a Regular Expression (Regex) engine
and an Artificial Intelligence (AI) engine. Both these engines together create a powerful tool for
discovering and redacting information.
The Regex engine has a user-friendly interface for defining text string patterns for locating private
information (PII). These text string patterns are stored in a dictionary and are assigned to document
classes as needed. Once they are assigned, they are applied to the automated redaction process.
The AI engine utilizes Natural Language Processing (NLP) to discover and redact document information.
When used together with the Regex engine it provides nearly 100% document redaction accuracy.
