Text Extraction/Tokenization

TCGJTCGJ Member Posts: 1 Newbie
Hi everyone!
I am trying to de-personalize some data that I have and I figured I'd be able to use RM to either extract names or tokenization to anonymize them.
I've tried using the tokenization and extract information operators, but they haven't given me the results I was looking for.
Has anyone done this before and/or can offer some advice?

    Hi TCGJ is not a perfect solution but it may give you an idea of what you could do with some operators inside RapidMiner

    You could also use the Meaning Cloud extension to recognize some other entities.
    And for a more advance take on the problem you could test the spaCy library with the execute python operator or with the JupyterNotebooks on AI Hub platform.
