SwiftIQ has released a first-of-its-kind data mining API aimed at uncovering the deep associations previously hidden in large datasets. The Frequent Pattern Mining (FPM) API has wide potential for use across major sectors, government, and healthcare, with the ability to speed up big data analysis and identify the opportunities that "connect the dots" for suppliers and service providers across any number of industries. SwiftIQ -- which offers a range of predictive algorithm APIs that customers use in conjunction with their own datasets -- is making the FPM API available on a case-by-case basis at present. Jason Lobel, CEO and Co Founder of SwiftIQ, spoke with ProgrammableWeb to announce the API.
Mapillary has launched an open-source SDK for its street-level image platform. The SDK allows users to process and upload images to the platform. The more images uploaded, the more up to date and more robust maps become within third party apps. Currently, over 390 million images have been uploaded.
Our API directory now includes 82 address APIs. The newest is the 1Map API. The most popular, in terms of mashups, is the geocoder API. We list 41 geocoder mashups. Below you'll find some more stats from the directory, including the entire list of address APIs.
