Getting started with SharePoint Syntex – an offering under the Project Cortex umbrella.   Syntex automates content classification and management.   Specifically classifies unstructured document understanding and structured form processing using AI integrated into SharePoint.   Train Syntex model with very few documents.    Models are associated to libraries and lists. Operationally – upload a file, doc is classified and metadata extracted.   All about automating document classification for purposes of better content discoverability.  Syntex went GA in October, is considered an add-on and 30-day trials are available.
