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.
The Swipp API allows developers to integrate Swipp's "Social Intelligence" into their sites and applications. Public information is not available on the API; interested parties are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org. Once available the APIs will "make it possible for people to interact around any topic imaginable."
