Google anti-harrasment project, Jigsaw, launched an API that brings programmatic access to the machine learning and AI technology driving the project. The Perspective API allows third parties like Wikipedia, the New York Times, and others the ability to score online speech for its toxicity level.
StrongSalt, encryption platform as a service provider, has introduced its Open Privacy API. The API allows developers to add encryption to everyday applications and workflows. The company believes it will do for encryption what Stripe has done for payments and Twilio has done for communications.
