Document AI, or Document Intelligence, is a relatively new research topic that refers to the techniques for automatically reading, understanding, and analyzing business documents. It is an important research direction for natural language processing and computer vision. In recent years, the popularity of deep learning technology has greatly advanced the development of Document AI, such as document layout analysis, visual information extraction, document visual question answering, document image

Furthermore, we also introduce early-stage heuristic rule-based document analysis, statistical machine learning algorithms, and deep learning approaches especially pre-training methods. Finally, we look into future directions for Document AI research.
