`Snips NLU <>`_ (Natural Language Understanding) is a Python library that allows to parse sentences written in natural language and extracts structured information.


.. code-block:: python

pip install snips-nlu

A simple example

Let’s take an example to illustrate the main purpose of this lib, and consider the following sentence:

.. code-block:: text

"What will be the weather in paris at 9pm?"

Properly trained, the Snips NLU engine will be able to extract structured data such as:

.. code-block:: json

"intent": {
"intentName": "searchWeatherForecast",
"probability": 0.95
"slots": [
"value": "paris",
"entity": "locality",
"slotName": "forecast_locality"
"value": {
"kind": "InstantTime",
"value": "2018-02-08 20:00:00 +00:00"
"entity": "snips/datetime",
"slotName": "forecast_start_datetime"


To find out how to use Snips NLU please refer to our `documentation <>`_, it will provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to use and setup our library.
