Train your own Natural Language Processor straight from your browser!


What?

Laice allows you to build, train, and classify your own sentences via a Web UI. Laice can also communicate with your applications through a RESTful API.

In other words, laice aims to be a free, open sourced alternative to api.ai, luis.ai, and wit.ai

Laice turns words into meanings (with enough training data), for example:

  • Jack lives in Berlin -> {'person': 'Jack', 'location': 'Berlin'}
  • Tutu really likes bananas -> {'person': 'Tutu', 'food': 'bananas'}
  • Close the door -> {'action': 'close', 'object': 'door'}

Getting started

git clone https://github.com/kendricktan/laice.git
cd laice

npm install -g bower
bower install

pip3 install -r requirements.txt

# Optional, doing this will yeild more accurate
# predictions, however will have a slower startup
# time. Its downloading pre-processed data.
python3 -m spacy.en.download --force all 
python3 manage.py migrate
python3 manage.py runserver

Then navigate to http://127.0.0.1:8000 to view your own Natural Language Processor!
