Filing is a tedious chore for organizations storing electronic documents in a large hierarchy of folders. To make this task easier, we built an easily extended framework that determines a set of likely locations for documents needing to be filed. We generate these recommendations by determining the similarity between a new document and the documents already present in the directory, using a combination of text, image, and metadata classifiers.
