Amazon Comprehend is a natural language processing (NLP) service that uses machine learning to find insights and relationships in text. With Comprehend’s Custom Entity Recognition API, you can easily build models to extract custom entities (policy numbers, part codes, serial numbers, etc.) that are tailored to your organization’s needs.

Starting today, Amazon Comprehend Custom Entity Recognition supports multiple entity types per model. With multi entity support, you can create a single custom entity recognition model to identify up to twelve entity types. You can now reduce cost and complexity by detecting multiple entity types in your documents using a single detection job. 

Amazon Comprehend multi entity type support is now available in all AWS regions where Amazon Comprehend is available. For additional information, please visit the documentation.
