Key phrase extraction eliminates nonessential words and standalone adjectives. Adjective-noun combinations, such as "spectacular views" or "foggy weather," are returned together. Generally, output consists of nouns and objects of the sentence, and is listed in order of importance. Importance is measured by the number of times a particular concept is mentioned, or the relation of that element to other elements in the text.
Improvements to models and algorithms are announced if the change is major, and added to the service if the update is minor. Over time, you might find that the same text input results in a different sentiment score or key phrase output. This is a normal and intentional consequence of using managed machine-learning resources in the cloud.
