Daily API RoundUp: Microsoft OneDrive, Traackr, Seldon Predictive Engine

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 samples 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.

There are 8 APIs as well as a new client plus source code samples added to the ProgrammableWeb directory over the weekend. Here’s a summary of what’s new:

Seldon.io provides an open source platform to predict the actions of media and e-commerce consumers. The Seldon predictive platform uses structured historical data to generate recommendations for different kinds of items (e.g. music, movies, articles). It produces these recommendations using a variety of algorithms and can create reports containing an assortment of statistics. Seldon provides three APIs for Integration with their platform. Use the Seldon REST API for interaction with content items, users information, and recommendations. The Seldon JavaScript API provides user actions and recommendations. The Seldon OAuth API is provided for authorization.. We've primarily categorized the Seldon APIs under the Predictions category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Predictions APIs.

R&R Music is a company that provides a music recommendation engine, music discovery, and online radio services. Their products include Tunehog, Cadenza, ClearPlayer, and Sounds Like Me. The R&R Music REST API provides access to information on millions of songs with multiple data points.
