Document AI - Process task

The Doc AI - Process task lets you send an online (synchronous) request to the Document AI processor to process a single document. The Document AI processor is a Cloud Document AI component that performs varies document processing actions such as, classify, split, parse or analysis of a document.

Document AI is a Google Cloud service that allows you to parse structured information from unstructured or semi-structured documents using state-of-the-art Google AI such as natural language, computer vision, translation, and AutoML.
