Zype has announced the release of video analytics APIs that allow users to create custom views around video stream hours, impressions, and devices used. The APIs aim to further the company’s vision of connecting content owners directly with their audiences.
AT&T has announced the launch of a new Speech API which is powered by the AT&T Watson℠ speech engine. The new Speech API allows developers to integrate speech-to-text functionality in mobile applications. The service works with almost any mobile phone and "across all other U.S. wireless carrier services."
Last Thursday, telecom giant AT&T announced they would be opening several of their "Watson" speech recognition APIs to outside developers in June. While it may be a while before any killer apps hit the scene, a major player like AT&T getting into the speech-to-text API game should not be ignored.
