NEW: Text Embeddings available on Eden AI

Quickly and easily map words or sentences with just a few simple steps! Text Embeddings help to capture the semantic relationships and meanings between different words and phrases.

What is Text Embeddings API?

In NLP (Natural Language Processing), embedding also known as Text Embeddings is the process of representing words or phrases in a high-dimensional numerical vector space. Embeddings are used to capture the underlying meaning and semantic relationships between words in a text corpus.

An embedding comprises a sequence of real-numbered values within a vector. The proximity between two vectors gauges their connection, where short distances indicate strong correlation, while substantial distances signify weak correlation.

Text Embeddings are used in various NLP applications, such as search, clustering, recommendations, anomaly detection, diversity measurement, and classification.

Access many Text Embeddings providers with one API

Our standardized API allows you to use different providers on Eden AI to easily integrate Embedding APIs into your system.

Cohere - Available on Eden AI

With Cohere's embedding API, short texts with fewer than 512 tokens are efficiently processed. The API employs a technique that involves averaging the contextualized embeddings of each token within the text, an approach inspired by Reimers and Gurevych. This ensures that even short texts are represented comprehensively in the resulting embeddings.

For longer texts exceeding the 512-token limit, the API handles the input by truncating it to fit within the maximum context length. This allows users to handle various text lengths while still benefiting from the embedding capabilities provided by the API.

Cohere offer three models for both monolingual and multilingual purposes. Their english model has an output dimension of embeddings of 4096.

Google - Available on Eden AI

You can quickly generate a text embedding with Generative AI using the Vertex AI text-embeddings API. These embeddings are consistently at work in the background; whether it's aiding your Google search, delivering tailored recommendations while you shop online, or suggesting a new rock band on your favorite music streaming service based on your music preferences.

Vertext AI has an output dimension of embeddings of 768.

OpenAI - Available on Eden AI

For optimal outcomes across a spectrum of applications, OpenAI highly recommend utilizing their second generation text-embedding-ada-002 model which has an output dimension of embeddings of 1536. It stands out as the superior choice, offering enhanced performance, cost-effectiveness, and user-friendly simplicity.

In three common benchmarks, their embeddings surpass top models, including a 20% relative improvement in code search. The new endpoint maps text and code to a vector representation by "embedding" them in a high-dimensional space using neural network models, which are GPT-3's offspring.

Most frequently used embedding models are for text similarity, search, and code search.

Benefits of using a Text Embeddings API

Using an Embedding API offers a range of benefits that enhance various aspects of text data processing and analysis. Some of the key advantages include:

  1. Ease of Integration: Embeddings APIs are designed to be easily integrated into your applications. They typically offer well-defined interfaces and documentation, allowing you to quickly start using embeddings without needing in-depth knowledge of the underlying techniques.
  2. Consistency and Quality: Reputable Embeddings APIs provide well-validated and high-quality embeddings that are generated from large and diverse datasets. This can improve the performance of your NLP models.
  3. Flexibility: Embeddings APIs can provide embeddings for different types of text data, such as words, phrases, or sentences. This flexibility allows you to choose the granularity of the embeddings that best suits your task.
  4. Multilingual Support: Many APIs offer embeddings for multiple languages, enabling your models to handle text in various languages without needing separate embedding models for each.

What are the uses of Text Embeddings APIs?

Embeddings APIs have a wide range of uses across various industries and applications. Here are some common use cases: ‍

‍1. Semantic Similarity and Search

You can compare the semantic similarity of several texts using embedding APIs. This is crucial for creating search engines that can deliver results based on the context and meaning of the search query in addition to exact keyword matches.

2. Sentiment Analysis

The sentiment (positive, negative, or neutral) of a text is identified by sentiment analysis. By capturing words and phrases in a way that captures the emotional context, embeddings APIs serve as the framework for sentiment analysis models, assisting algorithms in correctly classifying sentiment.

3. Text Classification

Text classification entails classifying text into predetermined groups. Classification algorithms can more accurately categorize text into the appropriate categories by using embeddings to better capture linguistic nuances.

4. Named Entity Recognition

Identifying names of persons, locations, dates, and other entities in text is known as named entity recognition. By enabling models to identify these items based on their semantic connections to other words, embedding APIs improve this process.

5. Anomaly Detection

Embeddings APIs are useful for activities like fraud detection or spotting unexpected consumer behavior since they help discover uncommon or abnormal text data inside a bigger dataset.

6. Text Generation

Embeddings are used in text generating jobs like chatbots and content production to make sure the language is contextually accurate and flows organically. As a result, the outputs become more logical and human-like.

Best Practices for using Text Embeddings on Eden AI

When implementing Embeddings on Eden AI or any other platform, it's essential to follow certain best practices to ensure optimal performance, accuracy, and security. Here are some general best practices for Embeddings on Eden AI:

  1. Handling Out-of-Vocabulary (OOV) Words: Embeddings might not cover all words in your dataset. Consider how you'll handle OOV words, such as by using subword embeddings (FastText) or applying strategies to handle unseen words.
  2. Performance Monitoring: Continuously monitor the performance of your embeddings in your application. Embeddings that work well initially might become less effective as your data distribution evolves.
  3. Documentation and Versioning: If you're developing embeddings as part of a project, document the details of the embedding generation process, including the model used, hyperparameters, and any preprocessing steps. Version control your embeddings to ensure reproducibility.
  4. Embedding Dimension: Choose an appropriate embedding dimension based on the complexity of your task and the size of your dataset. Larger dimensions may capture more information but could also lead to increased computational costs.
