The AP Metadata Service that has internally powered the Associated Press' award-winning news operation is now available to third-party developers and publishers. The service is aimed at publishers looking to "add rich metadata to their content, enabling them to connect their customers with more relevant news and information." The AP delivers the Metadata service in a cloud-based offering via a set of APIs associated with the organizations news content.
NewsCred, the API-driven service that provides curated news content announced a new implementation to NYDailyNews.com, the fifth largest newspaper website in the US. Leveraging NewsCred, the Daily News site will include a Desi News section targeting the rapidly growing South Asian community.
