Introduction

Welcome to the manual of the Workflow application of expert.ai Platform.

Workflow is the Web application that allows you to create and manage workflows based on the text intelligence models you design with the Authoring application or with external tools like expert.ai Studio.

Workflows are Web resources that any program can request through a REST API to analyze documents.
Creating a workflow and publishing it means making Platform project models available in a production environment for practical use.

A workflow does not necessarily coincide with a model: it can be as simple as a single model or as complex as your analysis needs, with pre-processors and post-processors taken from those already available or written in a JavaScript like language. It is also possible to design a workflow that uses more than one model, sequentially or in parallel.

The next articles in this section of the manual illustrate workflow operations and how to carry them out with the Workflow application.

This manual is divided into the following sections:

  • How-to guide: all the procedures to use the application
  • Reference guide: lists, definitions and description or workflow blocks and their output
