The Reddit API and the PRAW Python library are used to extract data from the AskScience subreddit. The posts are then analysed using LIP and built into a Chrome extension for searching similar content.
Wikipedia is one of the most widely used websites globally. We built a simple extension to that displays similar pages at the top of every Wikipedia page!
A technique we use to visualise how Lateral recommendations would look and work on a website is to create a Chrome extension that inserts the recommendations at load time. In this blog post, I will create a Chrome extension that modifies this blog to set a custom background and to modify the HTML.
Give me five is an open source Chrome extension that allows you to recommend the content you push to Lateral based on the content of the page you’re currently visiting. It’s the same code base that the NewsBot Chrome extension is built upon.
Creating a similar content recommender for all the abstracts of this year’s EMNLP 2015 Conference in Lisbon using Lateral’s machine learning API.
A while back we partnered up with Blockspring to enable anyone to use our API without needing to write any code. They’ve created an awesome solution that allows you to make use of a range of great APIs using only a spreadsheet. This enables you to bring data into your spreadsheet, run text-analysis and much more. […]
