What is key phrase extraction in Azure AI Language?
Key phrase extraction is one of the features offered by Azure AI Language, a collection of machine learning and AI algorithms in the cloud for developing intelligent applications that involve written language. Use key phrase extraction to quickly identify the main concepts in text. For example, in the text "The food was delicious and the staff were wonderful.", key phrase extraction will return the main topics: "food" and "wonderful staff".
This documentation contains the following types of articles:
- Quickstarts are getting-started instructions to guide you through making requests to the service.
- How-to guides contain instructions for using the service in more specific or customized ways.
To use this feature, you submit data for analysis and handle the API output in your application. Analysis is performed as-is, with no additional customization to the model used on your data.
Create an Azure AI Language resource, which grants you access to the features offered by Azure AI Language. It will generate a password (called a key) and an endpoint URL that you'll use to authenticate API requests.
Send the request containing your data as raw unstructured text. Your key and endpoint will be used for authentication.
Stream or store the response locally.
Get started with entity linking
To use key phrase extraction, you submit raw unstructured text for analysis and handle the API output in your application. Analysis is performed as-is, with no additional customization to the model used on your data. There are two ways to use key phrase extraction:
|Language studio||Language Studio is a web-based platform that lets you try entity linking with text examples without an Azure account, and your own data when you sign up. For more information, see the Language Studio website or language studio quickstart.|
|REST API or Client library (Azure SDK)||Integrate key phrase extraction into your applications using the REST API, or the client library available in a variety of languages. For more information, see the key phrase extraction quickstart.|
|Docker container||Use the available Docker container to deploy this feature on-premises. These docker containers enable you to bring the service closer to your data for compliance, security, or other operational reasons.|

An AI system includes not only the technology, but also the people who will use it, the people who will be affected by it, and the environment in which it is deployed.
