3. A few notions

  • Built-in Entities: these are entities who are matching generic patterns like email, numbers, time, dates…
  • Value-list entities: list of values ↔ synonyms.
Example: detect gaming consols
    • Value: Xbox / Synonyms: xbox 360, xbox one, xbox series
    • Value: Playstation / Synonyms: PS1, PS2, PS3, PS4, PS5
  •  
  • Regular Expression entities: use a regular expression to match a pattern
Example: detect: United States zip code
    • Regular Expression: \d{5}(-\d{4})?
