6. What does amberSearch search?
amberSearch currently searches text and image files.
Text files are generally searched in full text, this includes scanned PDF's which are normally not computer readable. Furthermore, information from the metadata (file path, author, ...) is also taken into account in the search. In addition to classic DMS systems, issue trackers, CRM, chat, intranet or e-mail systems can also be searched.
In the image search, we use information from the metadata as well as from the content of the image. Our AI recognises what is in the image and shows it to you accordingly in the image search.
