After claiming in a previous post that there are no German publishers with APIs, I discovered that German news agency dpa is offering the Presseportal API for its press release service. Agencies are an integral part of the news ecosystem, and especially because the dpa is an international API provider it is a great pleasure for me to put some more light on its services.
Sinners, you are not alone. That is the message a Mechanical Nun art project currently underway in San Francisco hopes to deliver. The nun will record your confession, parse your sins, and link those sins to a location. The data will then be made available in an API for visualization on a map so sinners can see they are in good company, and hopefully, as a result, be able to let go of some guilty feelings.
Jacoti, state of the art hearing solutions provider, has released the Inthear hearing loss compensation module and a corresponding API. Inthear is a software library that applies hearing loss compensation to audio signals. The API is used by all Jacoti products to allow cross-platform use. Inthear has received one of the industry's first ISO and CE approvals for a software-based hearing aid.
