Sentiment Analysis 2.1: Migration guide

We have released a new version of our sentiment analysis API, Sentiment Analysis. In Sentiment Analysis 2.1:

  • We’ve changed how the sentiment model is sent in order to enable the use of custom sentiment models across all the APIs that support sentiment analysis.
  • Support to analyze documents and URLs has been added.
  • A configurable interface language has been added to improve multilingual analyses.

As you would see, this is a minor version upgrade, so the migration process will be fast and painless. In this post, we explain what you need to know to migrate your applications from Sentiment Analysis 2.0 to Sentiment Analysis 2.1.

Lemmatization, PoS, Parsing 2.0: Migration guide

We have released a new version of our core linguistic analyzer: Lemmatization, PoS and Parsing. In Lemmatization, PoS and Parsing 2.0:

  • More analysis possibilities have been included to allow you to combine a complete morphosyntactic analysis with other types of analysis such as Sentiment Analysis and Topics Extraction.
  • Configuration options have been changed to provide more flexibility in the analyses and to make the options available more understandable.
  • We’ve refactored our code to:
    • Improve the quality of the concepts/keywords extraction.
    • Make easier and more flexible the use and traceability of user dictionaries.
    • Give the possibility of obtaining a more complex integrated analysis to give flexibility in complex scenarios where the standard output is not enough.
  • A new type of topic has been added, quantity expressions, to cover a specific type of information that was hard to obtain with previous versions.
  • Some fields in the output have been modified, either to give them more appropriate names or to make them easier to use and understand.
  • Some use modes have been retired as the information provided was redundant with what a morphosyntactic analysis already gives.

All these improvements mean the migration process is not as fast as it would be with a minor version. These are the things you need to know to migrate your applications from Lemmatization, PoS and Parsing 1.2 to Lemmatization, PoS and Parsing 2.0.

Topics Extraction 2.0: Migration guide

We have released a new version of our information extraction API, Topics Extraction. In Topics Extraction 2.0:

  • The topics extracted have been reordered to extract information in a more coherent way.
  • Configuration options have been changed to provide flexibility in the analyses and to make the options available more understandable.
  • We’ve refactored our code with two short-term goals in mind:
    • Improving the quality concepts/keywords extraction.
    • Making easier and more flexible the use of user dictionaries.
  • A new element has been added, quantity expressions to cover a specific type of information that was hard to obtain with previous versions.
  • Some fields at the output have been modified, either to give them more appropriate names or to make them easier to use and understand.
  • A configurable interface language has been added to improve multilingual analyses.

All these improvements mean the migration process is not as fast as it would be with a minor version. In this post, we explain what you need to know to migrate your applications from Topics Extraction 1.2 to Topics Extraction 2.0.

Sentiment Analysis 2.0: Migration guide

We have released a new version of one of our more popular APIs: Sentiment Analysis. In Sentiment Analysis 2.0:

  • The rules used for defining polarity terms have been greatly improved, adding new operators and making the models used much more flexible, which in turn leads to better results.
  • Sentiment analysis is now done at more levels, allowing to identify more complex syntactic structures and to obtain more detailed information about how the polarity is expressed.
  • More configuration options have been added related to the morphosyntactic analysis over which the sentiment analysis is carried out.
  • The architecture of the service has changed, leading to a tenfold improvement in the response time.
  • An integration with the Lemmatization, PoS and Parsing API has been added in order to ease the way of creating applications that use the information provided by both APIs.
  • Dictionary customization has been fully integrated in order to get out the most out of its functionality.

All these improvements mean the migration process is not as fast as it would be with a minor version. These are the things you need to know to migrate your applications from Sentiment Analysis 1.2 to Sentiment Analysis 2.0.
