Avoid entity extraction

Hi everyone!

Is there a way to avoid entity extraction in a particular intent? I am using spacy and duckling for entity extraction, and they work great. Trouble is that sometime they detect entities where I don’t need them to. I can’t use the “use_entities/ignore_entities” because that strategy does not avoid the extraction, it simply ingores the entities in a story.

Thanks, Andrea

Hi Andrea,

Can you help me understand what issue this is causing? If you are using slot filling, you could set auto_fill: false so that they won’t be filled by unwanted extracted entities.

You can use the keywords use_entities and ignore_entities in the domain.yml file to avoid entity extraction in a particular intents.

In the following link is explained in section Ignoring Entities for Certain Intents.
