Ephesoft, a provider of enterprise document capture solutions, has unveiled the newest version of its Transact platform. The Transact 4.5 platform includes new web service APIs that allow Ephesoft customers to integrate the company's supervised machine learning technology into existing solutions.
The xenon-canto API allows developers to access information on 8,244 bird species, including over 100,000 recordings of bird songs available so far. Over 20,000 recordings are added each year. However, they say this is a long-term project, with an estimated 2,000,000 recordings needed for a complete record. At current rates, recording them all would take over 140 years.
