This week, Amazon announced a slew of new offerings at its AWS division Re:invent conference in Las Vegas. These include AWS AppSync, a serverless service for real-time data queries, Amazon GuardDuty, a new security monitoring solution, and five new artificial intelligence APIs.
Amazon Alexa, the voice-controlled artificial intelligence behind the Amazon Echo and Echo Dot in-home speakers, has amassed a whopping 10,000 skills. Skills are features, tool, actions, or abilities enabled by developers. As such, Amazon is saying a big Thank You! to its supporters.
Nine APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in under Security, Electronic Signature, Data Mining, Weather and other categories. Highlights include the Microsoft Intelligent Security Graph API and an API for API-first CMS Comfortable.io. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
