        (nonnull MLKEntityExtractorOptions *)options;

    Parameters

    options

    The options for the entity extractor.

    Return Value

    An EntityExtractor instance with the given options.

  • Annotates the given text with the default value for MLKEntityExtractionParams. Uses the current time as the reference time and device timezone as the reference timezone. Annotates all supported entity types.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (void)annotateText:(nonnull NSString *)text
              completion:(nonnull MLKEntityExtractorCallback)completion;

    Parameters

    text

    The text to be annotated.

    completion

    Handler to call back on the main queue with the entity extraction result or error.

  • Annotates the given text with the given parameters such as reference time, reference time zone and entity types filter.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (void)annotateText:(nonnull NSString *)text
              withParams:(nonnull MLKEntityExtractionParams *)params
              completion:(nonnull MLKEntityExtractorCallback)completion;

    Parameters

    params

    The entity extraction parameters to be used during entity extraction.

    completion
