Wowzer, a provider of video screening/nterviewing, announced its Wowzer API. The Wowzer API allows developers to integrate the Wowzer features into their existing hiring process. As with many business practices, efficiency is very important, which is why Wowzer believes its video screening reduces screening time by 75% compared to phone screening.

Sociocast PredictionThe Prediction API, from Sociocast, aims to offer predictions at unprecedented accuracies. These predictions take data structures and customer-specfic data schemas to generate optimized ad campaigns and etc. However, it can provide predictions on data for social sites, gaming platforms, retail, finance and even government. The most interesting thing is sociocast claims to be 4-7 times more accurate at a tenth of the price.
