Google today debuted ML Kit, a new software developer kit with five core APIs that gives mobile developers the power to instantly add machine learning to their apps all through Firebase. If you're looking to add some serious computational smarts to your app, this is the tool you need.
The stakes for Machine Learning APIs are increasing by the day. Major vendors are making moves towards releasing ML platform APIs. One such release is the Cloud Natural Language API, an API from Google that provides devs the ability to investigate the structure and meaning of text via REST APIs.
