Daily API RoundUp: Microsoft Bing, RevTwo, Stride.ai, Orbit.ai, Helioviewer

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.

We've added 10 APIs to the ProgrammableWeb directory in such categories as Customer Service, Astronomy, and Natural Language Processing. Featured today are two APIs for sentiment analysis and several Bing search customization APIs. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.

APIs

The Orbit.ai API integrates artificial intelligence features into data applications. Orbit provides a natural language processing platform for with API methods for language processing, entity extraction, classification, and sentiment analysis. With the API, users can detect languages, identify people or places in typed text, analyze for positive or negative sentiment, and categorize text according to IPTC NewsCode standards. The Orbit.ai API is listed under the Natural Language Processing category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Natural Language Processing APIs.

Stride.ai TexSIE API allows users to collect data about text found on social media and other sources based on sentiment and machine learning algorithms. API methods allow users to get the sentiment of a document, keywords, sentences, entities, tweet or any kind of text blob. The API can recognize people, cities, organizations and more within text, can determine whether text is positive, negative or neutral, and can generate a short summary of text.

Bing Video Search API returns a list of relevant videos from a search query, and offers metadata such as publisher and creator info, encoding format, video length, and view count. This API provides a list of videos similar to the "Bing.com/Videos" site, but the experience is not exact, and the videos must be displayed in the same order of the response.

Bing Autosuggest API offers an intelligent autocompletion service by sending a partial search query to Bing. Suggestions can include user intent such as relevant weather information.

Bing News Search API returns a list of world news from a search query which can be filtered by local news, topic, and searchable metadata. Results include information such as authoritative images, related news, and provider. This API provides a list of news similar to the "Bing.com/News" site, but the experience is not exact.

Bing Image Search API returns a list of relevant images from a search query which include thumbnails, full image URLs, publishing website information, and image metadata. Also, it offers several filters such as image type, layout, freshness, and license. This API provides a list of images similar to the "Bing.com/Images" site, but the experience is not exact.

Bing Web Search API returns a list of relevant results from a search query which may include images, videos, and news.
