The final post of this three-part series features information about adaptive learning technology and integration with legacy systems.
When I was a child, I remember reading a Winnie the Pooh book about him finding a honeypot. When the honeypot was opened, a swarm of bees flew out and chased poor Pooh. In computer terminology a honeypot is a spam trap set to detect unauthorized use of information systems. Generally it consists of a site that appears to be part of a network, but is actually isolated and monitored.
Every day, tens of thousands of API calls result in a virtual hug or kiss sent through Avocado, the multi-platform couples app. For messages and other media, it’s dozens of times more, resulting in millions of calls a day to the Avocado API… and growing. So far: No major service disruptions, no server explosions, and hardly any pulling of hair out from our heads.
This is an interview with Bob Bickel, co-founder of Redline 13. Bob is a leader in the tech field with experience at Bluestone, HP, JBoss, Hyperic, CloudBees, eXo and RunSignUp. We picked the Redline13 ZipCode API to be the API of the week in July 2013.
Here is an interview with Brandon Wirtz, CTO of the very exciting text mining API startup Stremor.com. We have covered Stremor here before. Liquid Helium API is the core of all Stremor’s products and it extracts information about sentence and paragraph structure, word usage, parts of speech, grammar, writing style, punctuation, and author bias. Stremor also has a new kind of search engine called Samuru based on it’s language APIs.
Everybody knows about SMS these days, and as it has become a regular part of daily life here in the United States, so too have simple, easy-to-use SMS APIs become available for developers to use. But few people know that MMS – Multimedia Message Service – is just as common and pervasive a part of the U.S. mobile ecosystem, and that MMS APIs are also available.
Here is an interview with Andy Bartley, CEO of Algorithms.io . Algorithms.io has been selected as one of 30 start ups to participate in this year’s SV Forum Launch: Silicon Valley conference. In this wide ranging interview Andy talks of algorithms, APIs and the emerging and lucrative field for Big Data analytical algorithms.
We 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.
Last week, for the first time I had the opportunity to attend the Glue conference in Broomfield, CO. An aptly named conference, Glue’s mission is to provide a technical forum for web application builders, architects, and integrators to talk about the various technologies that stick together to make a web platform and its associated applications. It’s one of the most exciting and nerdy places you can go, and it’s well worth the investment if you’re in this industry. Perhaps one of the most interesting aspects of this conference is the co-mingling of Big Enterprise and Scrappy Start-up.
Here is an interview with Tal Rotbart, founder and CTO of SpringSense. The Springsense API has been covered by us before here. The API allows developers to recognize any nouns in a body of text and can be used for returning meaning of text, submitting sentences for meaning detection, and submitting text for disambiguation.
