SwiftIQ has released a first-of-its-kind data mining API aimed at uncovering the deep associations previously hidden in large datasets. The Frequent Pattern Mining (FPM) API has wide potential for use across major sectors, government, and healthcare, with the ability to speed up big data analysis and identify the opportunities that "connect the dots" for suppliers and service providers across any number of industries. SwiftIQ -- which offers a range of predictive algorithm APIs that customers use in conjunction with their own datasets -- is making the FPM API available on a case-by-case basis at present. Jason Lobel, CEO and Co Founder of SwiftIQ, spoke with ProgrammableWeb to announce the API.
Sinners, you are not alone. That is the message a Mechanical Nun art project currently underway in San Francisco hopes to deliver. The nun will record your confession, parse your sins, and link those sins to a location. The data will then be made available in an API for visualization on a map so sinners can see they are in good company, and hopefully, as a result, be able to let go of some guilty feelings.
