Stremor, a language heuristics technology startup, has announced the availability of Liquid Helium APIs to third-party developers. Liquid Helium is a proprietary language heuristics engine that analyzes and interprets written content so that it can be manipulated and used in future online media, connected devices and systems.

There are currently four Stremor Liquid Helium APIs available via Mashape, a leading cloud API platform and marketplace:
Third-party developers can use the Stremor Liquid Helium APIs in many types of applications. The Summary API can automatically generate appropriate summaries of long or complex content, including content from documents such as emails, web pages, documents, and knowledge management archives. In addition, the Summary API can extract specific data from content such as phone numbers, people and places
Stremor CEO Bill Irvine, explains the goal for the APIs in a quote included in the press release:
“Stremor’s goal is to create a platform that comprehends language and enables developers with a suite of language analysis APIs. This first API gives well-written summaries of long or complex content, with applications well beyond Yahoo’s limited use of their Summly acquisition. Now, anyone can leverage quality summaries in their applications.”
According to the press release, the four APIs just released are “the first of many” Liquid Helium APIs that Stremor will be releasing. Developers interested in using the Stremor Liquid Helium APIs can find documentation and apply for API keys at Mashape. Additional information about the Liquid Helium language heuristics engine can be found on the official Stremor website.
