Welcome to the manual of expert.ai Platform NL Flow.
NL Flow is the part of expert.ai Platform that includes:
- The Web application where a team of users creates and manages workflows based on the NLU models designed with Platform's authoring application or with expert.ai Studio.
- The runtime components that host published workflows as Web resources that any program can request through a simple REST API to analyze documents.
Creating and publishing a workflow means making NLU models available in a production environment for practical use.
It is possible to have multiple, independent, flows in the same workflow: all the flows receive the same input and the overall output of the workflow is the concatenation of the output of the individual flows.
This manual has two sections:
- How-to guide: all the procedures you can perform with the Web application.
- Reference guide: the description of workflow building blocks and other definitions.
The REST API that allows you to use workflows programmatically is described in a separate document.
