The MobileEngine API offers an image recognition platform that can be integrated with existing applications. This API takes an image an compares it with a database of photos and product images, while being fast and accurate. This interface can be used to identify books, wallpapers, magazines, CD covers, artwork, and developers can build searchable product catalogs for end-users. The API uses HTTP Basic Auth for authentication, and JSON and XML for responses.
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.
