Excerpt: After we posted the a list of NLP , Sentiment Analysis , and Machine Learning APIs a while ago, we noticed that some API descriptions require a little bit of digging into, to fully appreciate what these APIs can do. Here’s an example: Text analysis API including wordnet synsets,relation extraction,named entity recognition and classification,lemmatization,part of speech tagging,tokenization, and semantic role labeling. If you’re not familiar with these words, you could totally miss the features that this API is capable of. To help with that, we have listed below an explanation to some of these words in the NLP/Machine Learning context; as well as APIs (represented as numbered links) whose descriptions mention these terms.... read the full post.

Excerpt: Let’s talk photos. They play a huge part in social media. They convey in one glance what can take many words to describe. (someone should really turn that into a saying…) Most people these days walk around with a camera on them and take photos of just about anything you could imagine. Now, while we agree that not every photo is worth sharing with the world, the ready access to a photo-taking device with an internet connection have made social networks a more interesting place to hang out and we want to encourage more of it on App. net. We would like to start highlighting great photos that we see shared on App. net because we think there are some great shots being shared out there.... read the full post.

Excerpt: Summary: … according to new statistics from Onavo, which tracks actual use of mobile apps and games by “millions” of iOS users. Don’t look now but it looks like Yahoo’s mobile apps push is bearing fruit, at least according to new data from Onavo. Case in point: Yahoo Weather, which rolled out recently, already has what Onavo CEO Guy Rosen calls an “unprecedented” 3 percent market share among U. S. iPhone owners. That’s about 1. 5 million users total which makes it the 91st most popular iPhone app three weeks after release, according to Onavo Insights data. That’s very good for a new app, Rosen said in an interview. Other Yahoo mobile apps including Yahoo Messenger and the Yahoo app are also doing well.... read the full post.

Excerpt: The role of the business developer has traditionally been to initiate partnerships and follow through by ensuring some sort of integration is implemented. As enterprises become more software-driven, integration itself increasingly comes through APIs. This may mean that the implementation of API-driven “partner portals” is replacing traditional business development practices. A recent article from Wired claimed that 70% of all jobs will be replaced by robots by the end of this century. Are APIs and partner portals the robots that will replace manual business development processes? Here’s an example of how a business partnership might come about these days.... read the full post.

Excerpt: The Open Data Center Alliance (ODCA) is holding its Forecast event in San Francisco in June, and I’ve been invited to moderate the panel discussing Virtual Machine Interoperability. As moderator, I’ll be far more interested in facilitating insights from panel and audience than in wittering on about what I think, so I wanted to use this blog post to begin getting some of the issues clear in my mind. What is VM interoperability, and why does it matter? From time to time, I write about Open Data. This has nothing to do with that. The Open Data Center Alliance is interested in data centres, not data.... read the full post.
