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 (Singapore) and Canada (Central) Regions.

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. You can also build your own natural language models using Amazon Comprehend with no prior machine learning experience. Refer to this blog post for more details.

The service is fully managed and continuously trained by AWS. Amazon 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.
