Carpools are a great option for the daily commute to the office, especially for those who want to save a substantial amount on fuel or just simply want to minimise their carbon footprint by using their vehicles less. Carpoolworld is an application that works to help commuters and other travellers find others in nearby locations with similar transportation needs, to make ride-sharing arrangements. Carpoolworld also provides the Carpoolworld API that gives developers the option to create applications using this data.
Eva, the Expert Virtual agent from Evature, is a natural language processing search utility that is open and available for incorporation in any travel website. It offers a natural language processing engine through its Evature Travel Search API, which is tuned to identify common travel parameters such as number of travelers, place names and locations, and fuzzy date ranges. Travel websites can then use these parsed information bits to search their system for matching flights, hotels, or travel packages.
