I would like to code a script that could locate a specific word or number in a financial statement. Financial statements roughly contain the same information, they are however not identical and organized in the same way. My thought is that by using Tensorflow I could train a neural network to locate the specific words or numbers for me. I am thinking that if I label different text and numbers in 1000 financial statements and use them to train the neural network, it will then be able to identify these numbers or words in all financial statements. For example, tell it in all 1000 training statements which number that is the profit of the company. Then when I give it an unseen financial statement, it should be able to identify which number that is the profit.
Is this doable? I have been working with coding in python for a couple of months and so far I've built some web scrapers and integrated them with twitter, slack and google sheets. However, this would be my first AI related project. I would be very grateful for all your thoughts on this project and if anyone could steer me in the right direction by sharing relevant tutorials.
Thanks a lot!
