Daily API RoundUp: Divit Face, MedSelfEd, Freightview, NaturalText

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.

Eight APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory today in Natural Language Processing and Recognition categories, among others. Here, we summarize the new additions and how they can assist developers.


The NaturalText API allows developers to extract entities or keywords from text based on grammatical conventions using natural language processing. The algorithm detects the most meaningful text to extract. Entity linking, Entity relationship and other NLP tasks will be available soon. This API is in the Natural Language Processing category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Natural Language Processing APIs.

Divit Face is an image recognition service that recognizes, analyzes, and identifies human faces. The Divit Face API can detect faces in images facing up to 45 degrees away from the camera axis. It can determine gender, age, and smile and can be used to verify an image against a known face or a gallery of known faces.
