Machine Learning and Predictive Analytics Foster Growth

Janet Wagner, February 21st, 2014

ProgrammableWebMachine learning technology, which is defined in this ProgrammableWeb article, is starting to become a common component in many types of technology platforms. Machine learning has led to the advent of predictive analytics, which has been rapidly growing in usage and is becoming an important aspect of business operations and processes.


BigML 2014 Winter Release Boosts Predictive Modeling

Janet Wagner, January 10th, 2014

BigMLBigML, a cloud based machine learning platform that allows users to quickly build predictive models using small or big data, has announced the availability of the BigML Winter Release. The release features faster predictive models with MTree, a new development mode that allows users to run unlimited tasks up to 16MB for free, and new prediction strategies. The BigML Winter Release also includes new BigML API features, including dataset transformations, multi datasets, weighted models and an extra language called Flatline that allows for a new paradigm which BigML calls Programmatic Machine Learning.


Quandl Announces New Tool for Dataset Uploading

Janet Wagner, December 17th, 2013

QuandlQuandl, a company that launched a search engine for numerical data in January 2013, plans on introducing a brand new uploading tool in early 2014 which will make it possible for users to upload their own datasets to the Quandl platform. In February of this year, the Toronto-based company launched the Quandl API which provides programmatic access to every single dataset available on Quandl.


PW Interview Simon Chan PredictionIO

Ajay Ohri, November 5th, 2013

We have covered Machine Learning APIs before, including BigML.com, Algorithms.io and others. We now continuing the series in an interview with Simon Chan of Prediction.io which aims to further bring machine learning closer to the common man, in an easier interface. PredictionIO is an open source machine learning server for software developers to create predictive features, such as personalization, recommendation and content discovery.


PW Interview: Francisco J Martin, CEO BigML.com

Ajay Ohri, May 30th, 2013

BigMLWe have covered BigML.com API for making machine learning models here before. Recently BigML made some innovative changes including new data visualization and new classification ensemble models, all doable by API. Here is an interview with Fransisco J Martin, CEO of BigML.com.


PW Interview: Greg Lamp and Austin Ogilvie of Yhat on Shipping Predictive Models via API

Ajay Ohri, April 22nd, 2013

The ŷhat Cloud Toolbox is a suite of development tools for integrating predictive analytics into existing Web and mobile applications. ŷhat deploys your models as RESTful APIs, so there’s no need to port, translate, or adapt models for integration with existing systems. We have earlier covered YhatHQ API here.


YHatHQ API: Calling Hosted Statistical Models

Ajay Ohri, March 4th, 2013

The ŷhat Cloud Toolbox is a suite of development tools for integrating predictive analytics into existing Web and mobile applications. ŷhat deploys your models as RESTful APIs, so there’s no need to port, translate, or adapt models for integration with existing systems. It is currently in beta testing and an invite only stage.


225 Utility APIs: Google Translate, Bit.ly and uClassify

Wendell Santos, January 9th, 2013

Google TranslateOur API directory now includes 225 utility APIs. The newest is the Longdo Dict API. The most popular, in terms of mashups, is the Google Translate API. We list 41 Google Translate mashups. Below you’ll find some more stats from the directory, including the entire list of utility APIs.


BigML API Gets Bigger

Ajay Ohri, August 22nd, 2012

BigMLWe have covered the BigML API before because of its innovative use of machine learning through an API tied up with very easy to use interface. Think of it as Google Prediction API but without a black box algorithm, and with enhanced real time data visualizations and a much better user interface and crisper documentation.
