Idyl Cloud and Entity Extraction

A very large number of our users use Idyl E3 for entity extraction since it can be used in a local network instead of Idyl Cloud. (There are a few reasons for this but a couple big ones that we hear often are because of the sensitive nature of the users’ text and for performance.) Because of this we are removing entity extraction from Idyl Cloud so we can fully devote to its development in Idyl E3. One feature on the Idyl E3 roadmap is to allow for custom entity models and this is not a feature that’s readily accommodated by Idyl Cloud.

The Idyl Cloud SDKs will be updated to reflect this change.
