The MobileEngine API offers an image recognition platform optimized for images taken from a mobile device. The API quickly and accurately matches a user-submitted image to your collection of photos or product images. This can be used to identify pictures of books, wallpapers, magazines, CD covers, artwork and more. MobileEngine is designed to take into account common effects that occur when taking photos with mobile devices, including rotation, occlusion, perspective projection, changing lighting conditions, warps, blurs, flips and crops.
Sixteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Machine Learning, Recognition, Video, and Politics. Highlights today include an API for random Donald Trump quotes and an API for GitHub Projects programmatic access. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
