The MATLAB Production Server .NET client allows you to evaluate MATLAB functions on remote servers using native .NET data. Choose between two styles of API to evaluate a MATLAB function that includes; static proxy and dynamic proxy. It provides an interface that models the MATLAB function signature that enforces users to pass the proper data types to the function at compile time, or pass the function name as a parameter to the proxy along with the function arguments. The API uses the request-response model of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol for communication with the MATLAB Production Server and includes; request methods, response codes, message headers, and message bodies. MATLAB is a high-level language and interactive environment for numerical computation, visualization, and programming.
Swivel, along with its cousin IBM Research's Many Eyes, is helping make sharing, visualizing, and discussing data on the web fun and addictive. How? Take, for example, the following Swivel-hosted graph, which shows the Growth of Creative Commons Photos on Flickr to millions of photos.
Wolfram Alpha, the up-and-coming "answer engine" that we reported on back in May, has just released an API that developers have been awaiting since this spring. The new RESTful API provides access to the vast stores of data and computational knowledge available through the Wolfram Alpha project (technical details at our Wolfram Alpha API profile).
