How do I get more information about the entities from Wikipedia and DBpedia?

For wikipedia you can use the MediaWiki APIs.

For DBpedia you can add the value lod to the parameter include (see the documentation) in order to obtain the url to the DBpedia resource of each entity. You can then request a Linked Data representation of the DBpedia resources in different formats by using the appropriate HTTP "Accept" header, or directly query the DBpedia SPARQL endpoint.

 

I need to extend the Entity Extraction API with my own vocabulary of domain specific entities, can you help me?

With User-defined spots you can extend the internal knowledge graph by providing new terms to match against its entities, or boosting the already provided ones. If you need it for an urgent and large enough project, we can assist enterprise customers via custom development contracts, please contact us at hello@dandelion.eu

 

Can I use Dandelion API for Sentiment Analysis? What about feature xy?

When will Dandelion API support language XY?

The short answer is: when there is enough demand for language XY. We officially support 7 languages, but we have a beta support for 40 more languages, so we currently cover most of the spoken languages in the world!

We can however add support for any language in a short time. If you have specific needs, please contact us at hello@dandelion.eu or via Twitter using @dandelionapi.

 

I cannot send my secret data over the internet, can I buy a copy of Dandelion API to install in my own datacenter?

We need to discuss it with you on a case by case basis, please contact us at hello@dandelion.eu to discuss your requirements.

 

What the @fx!# is a unit? How does the pricing work?

You get 1000 units per day for free, if you want more you need to subscribe to a paid plan.

Each API has its own cost in units, for example a request to the Entity Extraction API, costs 1 unit. Other APIs cost more or less units per hit.

To know how many units you used for the day and how many you have left, check your account dashboard. Every API call also tells you its cost in units and the number of your remaining units for the day, check the docs for more details.
