New AI Technologies with RipCord
  – Guest Speaker: Kim Lembo, VP Marketing and Co-founder Ripcord


Ripcord has patented and built robots — the boxy, room-filling kind, not the anthropomorphic ones you might be thinking of — that can sort and scan a box of paper and enter the contents into a searchable database in the cloud. “[Ripcord’s] machine can handle mixed content from the size of a business card to a legal sized sheet, and it can go from rice paper all the way up to the thickness of card stock without changing anything,” CEO Alex Fielding says. The Ripcord robot even removes the staples. You can give Ripcord a box full of HR forms, business cards, and shipping manifests, and it will not only know the difference between them, but it will scan them at over 600 dpi and will sort them into an Amazon-hosted cloud database within hours. (The paper is then shredded and recycled.) Ripcord will also provide customers with ways to hook all that data back into their existing enterprise software. Fielding estimates the company will be digitizing 2.5 million records a day by the end of 2017. (The Verge – March 23, 2017)
