Language Overview

Language is server-less and multi-tenant service that's accessible using REST API calls. With pretrained and custom models, you can process unstructured text and extract insights without data science expertise.

The Language pretrained models are often retrained and monitored to provide you with the best results.

You can automate sophisticated text analysis at scale without any machine learning expertise.

The Language service contains these pretrained language processing capabilities:

Language Detection
Detects languages based on the provided text, and includes a confidence score.
Text Classification

Identifies the document category and subcategory that the text belongs to.

Named Entity Recognition

Identifies common entities, people, places, locations, email, and so on.

Key Phrase Extraction

Extracts an important set of phrases from a block of text.

Sentiment Analysis

Identifies aspects from the provided text and classifies each into positive, negative, or neutral polarity.

Text Translation

Translates text into the language of your choice.

Personal Identifiable Information

Personal Identifiable Information (PII) detection identifies, classifies, and de-identifies private information in unstructured text

Creating custom models can be done using Named Entity Recognition and Text Classification.

Ways to Access Language

You access Language using the Console, REST API, SDKs, or CLI.

Use any of the following options, based on your preference and its suitability for the task you want to complete:

  • The OCI Console is an easy-to-use, browser-based interface. To access the Console, you must use a supported browser.
  • The REST APIs provide the most functionality, but require programming expertise. API reference and endpoints provide endpoint details and links to the available API reference documents including the Artificial Intelligence Services REST API.
  • OCI provides SDKs that interact with Language without the need to create a framework.
  • The CLI provides both quick access and full functionality without the need for programming.
