Natural-language methods

Use natural-language SenseML methods to extract free text from unstructured documents, or as low-code alternatives to layout based methods. For example, extract information from legal paragraphs in contracts and leases, or results from research papers.

SenseML natural-language methods are powered by machine learning and natural-language processing models, for example by the large-language model (LLM) GPT-4.

The following topics describe how to author natural-language methods using SenseML.
