IN-SPIRE™ Visual Document Analysis

FAQ: How long does it take to process a set of documents?

Although this is largely dependent upon the speed and capacity of your computer, IN-SPIRE™ will process a typical dataset of 3,000 documents in about 2 minutes. The software is capable of processing upwards of 100,000 one-page documents in under 45 minutes on newer desktop computer configurations. Although there are no theoretical limits on the number of documents or size of an IN-SPIRE dataset, the practical upper bounds for maintaining responsive interactions with the visualizations ranges from 30,000 to 60,000 documents.
