Data entry presented one of the biggest obstacles to full automation and digitization, but machine learning, predictive reading and natural language techniques were developed in such a degree that are now allowing software an acceptable transcription rate (Predictive Analytics Times, 2016).
OCR (Optical Character Recognition) scan programmes and QR or bar code documents are making it easier to automatically transfer paper documents into a digitalized format. Moreover, thanks to IoT and to a large number of “connected” devices, data are being transferred directly from one device to another with no need of data entry. Therefore, this job will persist only as long as the digitalized process is not complete.
On the other hand, the knowledge of data entry clerks might be very useful for ICT programmes designers to definite a really quick and easy-to-use interfaces for the end-users, who are to enter data.
