Single purpose API
The number and variety of services around Uber’s offering continues to grow thanks to its API platform that allows third-party developers to build innovative services and applications on top of Uber’s resources. Gordon Wintrob speaks to Andrew Noonan, Partner Engineer at Uber, about the platform.
Google released a Mobile Vision API that includes two components: The Face API detects faces and associated characteristics. The Barcode API detects bar codes in real time.
