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. […]
Today we are pleased to announce the release of our Article Extractor API! When recommending content it’s important to ensure you are only recommending for the relevant text of an article. We have often faced this challenge with online articles and blogs. We’d want to fetch a URL but just extract the main body of […]
For the last few months, we’ve been doing occasional work on an approximate nearest neighbours (ANN) vector search tool, written in Python. It’s still not finished and there are many rough edges, but it comes with a working DynamoDB adaptor and hence operates out-of-memory, one our main requirements. On the down side, it isn’t as fast […]
The arXiv is a repository of over 1 million preprints in physics, mathematics and computer science. It is truly open access, and the preprints are an excellent dataset for testing out all sorts of language modelling / machine learning prototypes.
Which public companies work with solar technology, or are similar to Tesla? Find out quickly, using the Lateral API, serving publicly accessible data from Bloomberg.
We recently wrote about what our NewsBot Chrome extension does today I’m going to add to that and explain how it works behind the scenes. When building this project we approached it as if we were a user of the Lateral API to see what we could build.
Computers consist of on/off switches and process meaningless symbols. So how is it that we can hope that computers might understand the meaning of words, products, actions and documents? If most of us consider machine learning to be magic, it is because we don’t yet have an answer to this question. Here, I’ll provide an answer in the context of machines learning the meaning of words. But as we’ll see, the approach is the same everywhere.
Today I am going to talk about API documentation tools. Specifically the ones we use at Lateral to create our documentation. Now, I understand if you aren’t enthused by API documentation, I get that. But a lot of people are. I am. People who make APIs are. So maybe you should be too. You don’t want to be left behind not knowing what’s possible with today’s advanced API tools. What would you talk about at conferences? It’d be terrible. Imagine. You’d have no idea. Anyway. Here we go.
We are extremely excited to introduce you to NewsBot, the fastest way to find related articles and to stay up-to-date on the news that matters to you!
