AutoML Natural Language enables you to train custom machine learning models that classify content into a custom set of categories, extract entities from text, or perform sentiment analysis. Prices for AutoML Natural Language are computed based on the amount of training required (in hours) and how many text records you send for analysis.

Training costs

The cost for training a model is $3.00 per hour. The time required to train your model depends on the size and complexity of your training data.

Prediction costs

Your usage of AutoML Natural Language is calculated monthly in terms of how many text records you send for analysis during the billing month. A text record corresponds to a text document provided as input to a AutoML Natural Language request through the UI or the API, containing up to 1,000 Unicode characters (including whitespace characters and any markup characters such as HTML or XML tags).

If a document contains more than 1,000 characters, it counts as one text record for each 1,000 characters. For example, if you send three requests to the AutoML Natural Language that contain 800, 1,500, and 600 characters respectively, you would be charged for four text records: one for the first request (800), two for the second request (1,500), and one for the third request (600).

The table below provides the price per 1,000 text records.
