Adobe’s Intelligent Agent lets your phone scan through lengthy PDF documents for you.

Adobe’s Intelligent Agent lets your phone scan through lengthy PDF documents for you.

When was the last time you had to scroll through 20 pages of text on your phone just to find that one passage of text you’re looking for? Not too difficult if you use the right keywords. But trying to find that same information across multiple documents from years ago? Not easy at all.

That’s what makes Adobe’s latest sneak so interesting. Known just as the “Intelligent Agent Sneak”, the technology lets you literally talk to your document to get the information you need. And it’s able to search multiple documents in Document Cloud to give you recommendations on which documents to compare.

In the scenario offered by Adobe, all you need to do with a new contract is to ask ““How much does this cost?”. The Intelligent Agent uses NLP (natural language processing) to translate your voice and turn your question into a semantic query to search the document. You can then ask something more complicated like “How does this pricing compare with the previous contract I had with this company?”.

The Intelligent Agent will process the document with semantic analysis using deep learning and highlight the price difference between contracts. All of this would happen within the same Adobe Acrobat Reader you probably already have on desktop and mobile, and so would be readily available.

Check out the video below to see Intelligent Agent in action.
