The API enables users to implement Intelligent Document Recognition or customer Document Classification and Extraction solutions into existing business processes and workflows.
BlockAvenue, location-based analytics company, has announced the release of its first BlockAvenue API. The API gives developers access to BlockAvenue’s data (e.g. BlockScores, block reviews, neighborhood reviews, counts, etc.). BlockAvenue provides geolocation data on most neighborhoods across the US, often down to the block level. Its database grows everyday and BlockAvenue expects the API to push BlockAvenue towards its ultimate goal.
Another month – another API event! This time in my hometown Stockholm – what more could you ask for? Spring weather perhaps? We may have to wait for better weather until the fall conference, which will feature talks from ProgrammableWeb’s own Adam DuVander and John Musser. For now lets recap what we saw at the inaugural Nordic API event.
Google announced the Google Drive Realtime API. Postmaster released a beta version of its Postmaster API. Plus: Ex-Shopwell exec positions Yummly for top foodie spot with versatile API and PayZang introduces its innovative Payment API for merchant accounts and payment processing.
Here is an interview with Tammer Kamel, CEO and Co-Founder of Quandl.com. The Quandl API promises to make all numeric data on the internet easy to use. Quandl is a collaboratively-curated portal to over 3 million time-series datasets. Quandl’s long time goal is to make all the numerical data on the internet easy to find and easy to use.
Airpair links coders with entrepreneurs. Combining API security and Hadoop. Plus: HackColumbia codes for student problems, GSMA adds OneAPI Exchange to cellco armory, and 10 new APIs.
Of the many APIs we published this week, eleven were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those eleven, which included the OneID API. OneID aims to end the problem that many people have with too many usernames and passwords. It does so by combing a users security keys into one big, encrypted “blob.” Apparently this information is more secure than normal user authentication practices and is callable via the OneID API. Once a users information is in the blob, OneID authenticates a user when they are trying to log into a site by confirming three different digital signatures on different devices. To learn more about OneID functionality, visit the OneID site as well as the OneID API blog post.
Quandl Founder Tammer Kamel wants to create a new Wikipedia for Numeric Data. Quandl has built a sort of “universal data parser” which has thus far parsed about 2.8 million datasets without anything from any data publisher. As long as they spit out data somehow (excel, text file, blog post, xml, api, etc) the “Q-bot” can slurp it up. The result is quandl.com as sort of “search engine” for numerical data. Quandl’s bot returns data in a totally standard format. The idea with Quandl is that you can find data fast, and it is ready to use.
Balanced, online payments solutions provider, has launched a new API: Balanced Payouts. The new API allows developers to integrate next day ACH deposits into existing apps and web properties. The next day deposit functionality was previously available through Balanced’s full marketplace payments platform; however, after considering customer feedback, the company decided to offer the functionality as a standalone product.
