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.
It's all well and good having a beautifully designed website with all the bells and whistles, but if it never comes up in a search or no-one even lands on it, it's really just wasting valuable cyber space. Web analytics platforms help to provide insight as to what kind of traffic a website is actually getting, and in turn, helps website owners or developers to make any necessary adjustments to increase traffic and user interaction. Positionly is one of these web analytics platforms. Positionly also provides the Positionly API that makes this functionality available to developers who may want to integrate it with other applications.
Being able to connect a lot of things to the Internet is one thing; being able to build applications that actually do something useful with them is quite another. While the Internet of Things (IoT) is all the rage these days, few organizations have any actual capability to take advantage of it. With that in mind, Glassbeam has launched SCALER, a cloud-based platform for creating analytics applications based on machine data.
