Prebuilt Entities

Teneo comes with an extensive set of predefined entities. These entities make use of different techniques, like hand-crafted lists or machine learned NER's, to extract an entity from an input. Entities will make the matched entity detailes available in one or more Entity variables. The %COUNTRY.ENTITY for example, not only provides the country name but also the capital and country code.

These are the entities that are available for English. Similar entities are available for French, German, Italian, Spanish and Swedish.
