What is OCI Language?

OCI Language is a cloud-based AI service provided by Oracle for performing sophisticated text analysis at scale.

What does it do?

Text Analysis is a broad field and is often time-consuming for business to manually analyse large volumes of text data. This is why there are multiple offerings from Oracle Language services to help with this, utilizing Natural Language Processing (NLP) to derive insights.

We have summarised some of the key features of OCI Language below, but there is a full list of service offerings later in the blog.

  • Language Detection – identify and translate more than 75 languages
    within written text.
  • Entity Recognition – Automatically recognises specific entities such as names of individuals, places, products, and organisations.
  • Sentiment analysis – how positive or negative the tone of the text.

Why should your business use Language services?

  • Gain Insights: Product perception and decision intelligence
  • Increase Revenues: customer insights, predictive data analytics.
  • Reduce Costs: Automate manual processes with classification, entity recognition and translation.
  • Increase Compliance: Automatically detect protected information.

What are the key benefits of using OCI language?

  • Meet your business needs with the ability to train custom models, to meet your own business needs.
  • Faster development with off-the-shelf AI models for common use cases.
  • Helps focusing on business outcomes rather than data science.
  • Pay as you go, no upfront costs.

What are some examples of where these might be used in business?

These are some broad examples but demonstrate how these language models can be applied to multiple industries and business sectors.
