Google has announced two new Cloud Machine Learning products that are entering beta: Cloud Natural Language and Cloud Speech APIs.
The new Google Cloud Natural Language API in open beta is based on Google’s natural language understanding research. Cloud Natural Language lets users easily reveal the structure and meaning of text in a variety of languages, with initial support for English, Spanish and Japanese. It includes:
Sentiment Analysis: Understand the overall sentiment of a block of text
Entity Recognition: Identify the most relevant entities for a block of text and label them with types such as person, organization, location, events, products and media
Syntax Analysis: Identify parts of speech and create dependency parse trees for each sentence to reveal the structure and meaning of text
