It is possible to extract a date out of a text using the
dateutil parser in a "fuzzy" mode, where components of the string not recognized as being part of a date are ignored.
from dateutil.parser import parse dt = parse("Today is January 1, 2047 at 8:21:00AM", fuzzy=True) print(dt)
dt is now a
datetime object and you would see
datetime.datetime(2047, 1, 1, 8, 21) printed.
