Google has announced updates to the Cloud Speech API which include the addition of word-level timestamps which means that timestamp information is now available for each word in the transcript. Also, the API now supports long-form audio files up to three hours long and 30 additional languages.
Sixteen more APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Education, Authentication, and Machine Learning. Highlights include an API for personalizing user experiences and an API for adding branding to videos and other content. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
This weekend's look at what what going on in the world of APIs discusses Russian search giant Yandex's open sourced machine learning library, CatBoost. We also cover an Email Verification API from validation company SmartSoft, and look at HP's release of their data protection suite backed by an API.
Body Labs introduced API access to its SOMA technology. SOMA scans a single photo of a human; analyzes the photo along with the subject's height, weight, and gender; and then generates a 3D model and digital measurements for the subject. The SOMA Shape API provides programmatic access to the tech.
As Machine Learning is making inroads into applications across consumer and enterprise domains, Google is pushing updates to its Machine Learning APIs via its advanced models that help analyze and make sense of images and videos.
Thirteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Customer Service, Banking, Contacts and Machine Learning. One highlight added today is the NanoNets API for integrating with machine learning models. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
Salesforce has introduced new Einstein Platform Services and APIs including Einstein Sentiment, Einstein Intent, and Einstein Object Detection. Developers can use these services to build CRM apps that leverage machine learning capabilities such as image recognition and natural language processing.
RAISR, Google's proof-of-concept, neural-network-backed image sampler, represents a fundamental shift to the visual paradigm of the web. Though it's true impact is still a ways away, it marks the point where people in the front-end world should start to get very interested in machine learning.
Google has released the TensorFlow Object Detection API which provides access to an open source framework for constructing, training and deploying object detection models. The API provides access to Google's in-house object detection system, and includes a selection of trainable detection models.
