Application: Intelligent adjustment of documents via machine learning (Patent ID: US20230376167A1)

The patent filed by SAP SE describes a system and method that utilize machine learning to recommend adjustments to digital documents within a report managed by a software application. The method involves detecting a request to open a digital document, executing a machine learning model to identify values that need adjustment based on previous user adjustments, activating a user interface element for the identified value, and displaying the recommended adjustment upon user selection. Additionally, the system can store links between user interface elements and display menus, provide trend analysis, and facilitate the acceptance and submission of recommended adjustments.

The computing system and method outlined in the patent focus on identifying changes in digital documents for reporting purposes, training a machine learning model to recognize normal values, and recommending adjustments based on deviations from these norms. By populating user interfaces with content from digital documents, activating elements for recommended adjustments, and providing trend analysis, the system aims to streamline the process of fulfilling reporting requirements. The patent also details the storage of links between user interface elements and display menus, as well as the ability to accept, display, and submit recommended adjustments to a host system via a computer network.
