Amazon Comprehend is a natural language processing (NLP) service that uses machine learning to analyze your text. Amazon Comprehend identifies the language of the text, extracts key phrases, places, people, brands, or events, understands sentiment about products or services, and identifies the main topics from a library of documents. The service learns from a variety of information sources, including product descriptions and consumer reviews and it retrains against new data constantly to keep pace with the evolution of language. Because of the depth and breadth of this training approach, it is able to provide accurate coverage for a wide range of scenarios like analyzing customer feedback, intelligent document search, and automatically organizing content.

Amazon Comprehend provides Keyphrase Extraction, Sentiment Analysis, Entity Recognition, Topic Modeling, and Language Detection APIs so you can easily integrate natural language processing into your applications. You simply need to call the Amazon Comprehend APIs in your application and provide the location of the source document or text.

With Amazon Comprehend, you only pay for what you use. You are charged based on the amount of text processed and there are built-in volume discounts.

The service is now generally available in US East (N. Virginia and Ohio), US West (Oregon), and Europe (Ireland). To learn more about Amazon Comprehend, visit the product pages, and sign up for a free trial today.
