Single purpose API
Last week, HP officially launched commercial plans for Haven OnDemand, a machine learning platform that offers developers a suite of APIs they can use to "turn virtually any data into an asset anytime and anywhere." The platform entered beta in 2014 and offers more than offers more than 60 APIs.
IBM continues to push the boundaries of human-machine interaction with its Watson, machine-learning platform. A new set up APIs allow third party software and hardware to leverage the platform. Tone Analyzer, Emotion Analysis, Visual Recognition, and Expressive TTS arrive as the new Watson APIs.
The API economy now spans thousands of API-providing companies across hundreds of categories. Within each category there are multiple offerings, all competing for the affections and money of third-party developers--any one of which could unleash the next API-consuming Zillow, Instagram or Uber.
