The Event Registry API allows developers to access and integrate the functionality of Event Registry with other applications. The API methods include searching for and retrieving news articles as well as world events mentioned in news articles. Users can narrow down the articles or events feed by the topic, language, keywords, article location, time of interest and news source. Event Registry collects and annotates news articles published by over 30,000 news publishers worldwide in real-time.
The API offers event extraction for news articles. Events (any significant happenings in the world that are reported by a number of news outlets) are identified immediately after the news articles that report about it are collected.
Thirteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Writing, Animation, and Financial. Featured APIs today include two APIs for retrieving cryptocurrency data, an API for analyzing ad blocking repercussions, and an API for finding parking spots.
