ai.text.detect-intent

Detect intent from text.

Basic usage

To detect-intent a text, send a POST request to Intento API at https://api.inten.to/ai/text/detect-intent. Specify the source text, source and target languages and the desired provider in JSON body of the request as in the following example:

curl -XPOST -H 'apikey: YOUR_API_KEY' 'https://api.inten.to/ai/text/detect-intent' -d '{
    "context": {
        "text": "I want to book a flight ticket to Moscow",
        "lang": "ru"
    },
    "service": {
        "provider": "ai.text.detect-intent.yandex.dictionary_api.1-0"
    }
}'

The response contains the detect-intent results grouped by part of speech and a service information. Parts of speech are formatted in snake_case style:

{
    "results": [
        {
            "intent": "bookflight",
            "score": 0.9984499216079712
        }
    ],
    "meta": {},
    "service": {
        "provider": {
            "id": "ai.text.detect-intent.yandex.dictionary_api.1-0",
            "name": "Yandex Dictionary API"
        }
    }
}

If the provider doesn't have capabilities (e.g. language pairs) to process request, 413 error will be returned:

{
    "error": {
        "code": 413,
        "message": "Provider ai.text.detect-intent.yandex.dictionary_api.1-0 constraint(s) violated: from (Source language)"
    }
}

To get a list of available Dictionary providers, send a GET request to https://api.inten.to/ai/text/detect-intent.

        "name": "Yandex detect-intent API",
        "score": 0,
        "price": 0
    }
]
