It’s been an exciting time with a whole stack of new features coming out of the 2017 Amazon re:Invent conference. Today I thought I’d focus on one of the newly released Machine Learning services, which really excites me – Amazon Comprehend. It’s a powerful tool to help facilitate your decisions and understanding.
The AWS Website describes it like this:
Amazon Comprehend is a natural language processing (NLP) service that uses machine learning to find insights and relationships in text. Amazon Comprehend identifies the language of the text; extracts key phrases, places, people, brands, or events; understands how positive or negative the text is; and automatically organizes a collection of text files by topic.
Essentially what it means is that you can feed Amazon Comprehend qualitative data for processing. For example, Online Store reviews, Customer Surveys, to perform an analysis and understanding at scale!
