Daily API RoundUp: Condo Control Central, CryptoAPIs, GA4GH, Ciliar

Every day, the ProgrammableWeb team is busy, updating its three primary directories for APIs, clients (language-specific libraries or SDKs for consuming or providing APIs), and source code samples. If you have new APIs, clients, or source code examples to add to ProgrammableWeb's directories, we offer forms (APIs, Clients, Source Code) for submitting them to our API research team. If there's a listing in one of our directories that you'd like to claim as the owner, please contact us at editor@programmableweb.com.

Nine APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Cryptocurrency, Genetics, Open Data, and Accounting. Highlights include the Ciliar API for recognizing objects in video and the BankersAlgo API for foreign exchange rates. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.

APIs

Ciliar provides image and video recognition services. The Ciliar API provides high-accuracy object detection for images and videos. Image requests cannot exceed 10Mb. For videos, frame-by-frame object recognition and tracking is provided. While in beta, each video request can process a maximum of 500 frames. Ciliar can recognize more than eighty unique objects, and more will continue to be added. The Ciliar API is listed under the Recognition category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Recognition APIs.
