Here is an interview with Karthik Ram, who has co-created the rOpenSci project, which helps make REST APIs consumable by the R language. Developers can take note of this - R is one of the widely used statistical languages in the world, and has many GUIs for making advanced data mining easily available.
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.
