The Microsoft Cognitive Services Knowledge Exploration Service (KES) API interprets natural language queries, and provides auto-completion suggestions. This API evaluates structured queries and returns information about matched objects; also, it provides attribute visualizations and interactive faceted experiences. Currently, there is a free plan available, and a standard option with a price based on Azure usage. The KES API uses JSON for data exchange, and API Keys for authentication.
A whopping Thirty Two APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in the last few days in categories including Machine Learning, Sentiment, Payments, and Sports, among others. Highlights include APIs from Microsoft, IBM Watson, Square, and W3C. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
