Amazon Comprehend is a natural language processing (NLP) service that uses machine learning to discover insights and relationships in text. Starting today, Amazon Comprehend is available in the AWS Asia Pacific (Sydney) Region. 

Amazon Comprehend identifies the language of the text; extracts key phrases, places, people, brands, or events; understands the sentiment (positive, natural, or negative) of the text; analyzes text using tokenization and parts of speech; and automatically organizes a collection of text files by topic. The service is fully managed and continuously trained by AWS. Comprehend makes it easy to add text analytics to your applications by removing any skills or steps required to build and run NLP models. 

Get started with Amazon Comprehend by using the console, or the API. If you want to learn how to build text analytics solutions with Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) and Amazon Comprehend, read this blog
