Here’s a quick summary of what’s new in Idyl E3 2.5.0. It’s not available yet but will be soon. For a full list check out the Idyl E3 Release Notes.
- English-language person entity models can now be trained using the ConLL-2003 format.
- You can now create and use deep learning neural network entity models. Check out the previous blog posts for more information!
- There’s a new setting that allows you to control how duplicate entities per extraction request are handled. You can choose to retain all duplicates or return only the duplicate entity with the highest probability.
- A new TCP endpoint accepts streaming text. This endpoint deprecates the /ingest API endpoint.
- Idyl E3 2.5.0 changes all language codes to 3-letter ISO 3166 codes. While 2-letter codes are still supported we recommend using the 3-letter codes instead.
- Entities extracted by a non-model method (regular expression, dictionary) used to return a value of 100.0 for the entity’s probability. Extracted entity probabilities should exist within the range 0 to 1 so these entities are now extracted with a probability of 1.0 instead of 100.0.
