The Cloud Natural Language API uses Google's machine learning to integrate applications with a text analysis system. This API can extract data about places, people , and events, obtain intent from conversations, and perform analysis on specific text uploaded to the servers. The Natural Language API is REST based, uses JSON for requests, and API Keys for authentication. Currently, this API is in beta, and it is free to try.
Seventeen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Machine Learning, Internet of Things, Linked Data and Sports. Highlights today include Natural Language Processing APIs from Google and IBM Watson. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
