Detecting Key Phrases

You can use Amazon Comprehend operations to detect entities and key phrases in your document.

The DetectKeyPhrases and BatchDetectKeyPhrases operations detect the key phrases in a document. A key phrase is a string containing a noun phrase that describes a particular thing. It generally consists of a noun and the modifiers that distinguish it. For example, "day" is a noun; "a beautiful day" is a noun phrase that includes an article ("a") and an adjective ("beautiful"). Each key phrase includes a score that indicates the level of confidence that Amazon Comprehend has that the string is a noun phrase. You can use the score to determine if the detection has high enough confidence for your application.
