- Scalability: Classify can handle million-character payloads and concurrent requests without any impact on performance or reliability.
- Custom Model Creation: Classify requires a trivial amount of labeled data and needs no machine learning expertise.
- Time to Value: Classify is fast! You can define, train, and use a performant model in minutes rather than the typical weeks or months.
Classify is accessed via a simple REST API. Easily define your concepts, submit your text, and receive a list of annotated concepts in response in the form of a JSON. For more detailed information, please visit the API reference. We have built and helped customers build other ways to consume Classify, such as extensions for applications such as Microsoft Office. If you are interested in such options, please contact us.
Yes! You can continuously update your Classify model with new custom concepts or refinements to existing concepts. Even better, Classify maintains a history of these model updates, so you can revert back any model you created.
Classify is available as a pay-as-you-go solution priced per thousand characters processed or through an annual subscription. Contact us to discuss what’s right for you.
