This Ruby gem is made for interfacing with the MonkeyLearn web API. MonkeyLearn is a cloud based text mining and semantic processing service. Developers can integrate MonkeyLearn into their app for natural language processing and machine learning customized for uploaded text. Users can extract and classify content using MokneyLearn's web interface or through their APIs. MonkeyLearn hosts a web API with wrappers for major programming languages for compatibility with most applications.
Considering how many APIs were added to our directory during 2015, it's nearly impossible for developers to take notice of all the unique and important innovation that the API world is driving. Here, we highlight some interesting technology we've seen this year that developers may have missed.
While social networking sites already help users maintain connections with friends and interest groups, a recent trend in web services has been the growth of semantic technologies that connect people across different websites. New York startup AdaptiveBlue offer a service called "Glue," which uses semantic web techniques to understand the content of popular web pages that describe lifestyle objects such as books, music, and movies. It then lets you do many useful, in-context things based on that data, such as learn more about the movie or actors on IMDB, buy the soundtrack on Amazon, read the historical background on Wikipedia, and a interact with a variety of other sites and services.
The availability of the EmoVu API means that developers can create emotionally intelligent applications using artificially intelligent emotion-recognition technology. This article takes a closer look at what the EmoVu API can do.
