AlchemyAPI Face Detection and Recognition Web

The AlchemyVision Face Detection and Recognition Image API accepts an image file as an URL link. The API will scan a photo to detect facial locations and can recognize individuals present within a photograph, such as celebrities. The API will provide data on bounding box, gender, approximate age and name, if the image is of a celebrity. The extracted metadata can be returned in both XML, RDF, and JSON formats.

FRED - Open Knowledge Extraction

The FRED API allows users to perform Open Knowledge Extraction operations, which automatically create RDF/OWL ontologies and linked data out of natural language sentences. The results are enriched using Named Entity Resolution (NER) and Word-Sense Disambiguation (WSD). The FRED API's methods are based on discourse representation theory, linguistic frames, combinatory categorial grammar, and ontology design patterns.

OCLC WorldCat Discovery

WorldCat Discovery API allows developers to link their collection data to the WorldCat database. By integrating this API, libraries will be able to expose their collection to others on the web, not just locally. Currently, this API is only available for selected libraries.

Europeana

Europeana provides an online database of cultural heritage objects in the form of books, audio clips, photos, art, etc. It contains objects pertaining to history, fashion, maps, natural history, architecture, and more. The Europeana REST API allows developers to integrate the ability to search and retrieve objects from the database into their own applications.

AlchemyAPI Web Taxonomy

AlchemyAPI is a text mining platform. It provides a set of semantic analysis capabilities in the natural language processing field. Customers are able to perform social media monitoring, target advertisements, track sentiment in media, automate content aggregation and recommendation, etc. The Taxonomy API allows users to classify their content into topic categories up to five levels deep. Content can be filtered or grouped for further analysis or to track topics. Narrow classification enables users to target decisions with finer resolution.

Ghent University Academic Bibliography

The Ghent University Academic Bibliography provides bibliographic information describing scientific publications by Ghent University researchers. The Ghent University Academic Bibliography API provides a number of methods for developers to programmatically access that bibliographic information. The API is able to deliver feeds for bibliographic data from various departments and projects, access data describing single publications, subsets of the collection, or the collection in whole, search for publications using a variety of parameters, and much more.

Consumer Complaint Database

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) works to make markets for financial products and services work for Americans through education, enforcement, and study. The CFPB’s Consumer Complaint Database catalogues the complaints received about financial products and services. The database consists of a single dataset, while providing multiple views through which to analyze the dataset. The Consumer Complaint Database is exposed through a RESTful API built on the Socrata Open Data API. The API allows applications to retrieve metadata about the dataset and views, query for views matching specified search criteria, or retrieve specific rows of data from the dataset and views.

Open PHACTS

Open PHACTS is a consortium focused on reducing the barriers to drug discovery in industry, academia, and for small businesses. The Open PHACTS API provides a developer interface for integrated querying of multiple publicly available pharmacological and physicochemical data sources. The API supports HTTP GET calls and returns data in a variety of formats, including JSON, XML, RDF, and more. An API key is required, but signup is free.

Harvard Faculty Finder

The Harvard Faculty Finder (HFF) provides a method by which students, faculty, administrators, and the general public can search for Harvard faculty members based on their research and teaching expertise. HFF is not a database of faculty profiles. Rather, it indexes and links existing information sources, making it possible to search and browse for faculty information across schools. Currently, only members of the Harvard community can make use of HFF, but that is expected to change later in the year.

ChemSpider InChi Resolver

The service provides tools for discovering and generating new InChIStrings and InChIKeys for chemical compounds. These International Chemical Identifiers conform to a format determined by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry to uniquely name compounds across different chemistry research contexts. Functions include conversion between alternative identifier strings for the same compounds. API methods support generation of InChI strings, either by converting other formats, e.g., SMILE, or uploading or creating drawings of chemical structures. Resolver methods interpret InChIString or InChIKey values submitted with the request and return the associated chemical structures.
