The Mashape API Marketplace boasts more than 10,000 APIs from over 140,000 API developers around the world. To help you discover interesting APIs in various topics, we’re happy to introduce API collections
, a curation of Mashape’s most popular APIs.
to sentiment analysis
, image recognition
to face detection/ recognition
, we carefully handpick Mashape’s top APIs and curate them by categories just for you! On each of the API collections, you will find a short description of the API, with a consume API link that will bring you straight to the API’s documentation on Mashape.
Kairos, a SaaS-based startup in Miami, FL, has now made its advanced 2D to 3D facial detection and recognition API available on Mashape. The Kairos API takes the complexity out of face recognition so you can focus on building great products. Kairos brings you commercial grade face recognition without hassle; no talking to a shark salesperson in a $1,000 suit, or length contracts!
Do check out the guest post below by them, and don’t forget to consume their API
on Mashape! 🙂
What is face recognition?
At Kairos, we get a lot of questions from people about how…
Last weekend, NTT DoCoMo Innovation
partnered with Mashape and hosted Global Hack
. Global Hack is one of the first hackathons in Tokyo, where Japanese developers spent the weekend hacking to win a trip for 4 to Silicon Valley.
Although hackathon culture is just beginning to develop in Japan, the event was well received. Final presentations were done in true hacker spirit; with no slideshows allowed, and featuring only demos of the hack to judges.
The most creative hack I saw was a stuffed animal controlled by a phone that could recognize your voice, face and tell you the weather.…
There are numerous use cases for manipulating 3D images; however, finding a quality application has always been a challenge, until now. Mashape is proud to partner with Vizago
, a leading face recognition technology company. Using a single 2D facial photo, Vizago creates full 3D facial reconstructions in OBJ format.
Vizago’s patented Morphable Model Technology enables you to model and manipulate faces in real 3D, as well as create realistic 3D reconstructions of faces from a single user photo. With the Vizago API
you can create 3D representations when developing computer game characters, avatars, and medical simulations. Vizago is also…
Got images to analyze, modify, sell, or recognize? Or do you need generate images? These Image APIs might help:
ImageVision – NuditySearch API
ImageVision’s NuditySearch Recognizing nudity is a highly complex problem. NuditySearch tackles this problem by recognizing anatomical attributes and determining if there is nudity in images.
Animetrics Face Recognition API
The Animetrics Face Recognition API can be used to detect human faces in pictures. Information on facial features or “landmarks” is returned as coordinates on the image.. Animetrics Face Recognition will also detect and return the orientation, or “pose” of faces…
Note: Check out our latest API collections page for the list of updated APIs.
There has been a lot of buzz around Face Recognition since Google Glass
was announced. We believe that face recognition will open up a ton of possibilities in how we interact not just with each other, but with objects as well – whether it’s with Glass or not.
To help you in your journey of exploring face recognition, we have below a long list of face detection and recognition APIs that you can use for your applications. Enjoy!
We would like to congratulate the two teams that won the Mashape categories
at AngelhackNYC! Awesome job guys! We look forward to opening up opportunities for you by promoting your hacks with the Mashape community, and connecting you with developers/entrepreneurs/businesses that might take interest 🙂
Also, congratulations to the AngelhackNYC grand prize winner Kronicle! As well as the 70+ teams
that participated in AngelhackNYC. We’d reach out to everyone soon!
And finally, thanks to the organizers of Angelhack
for arranging a well-attended hackathon in New York.
Without further ado, our winners!

Mashape demo at Gluecon
Last week at Gluecon 2013
, we had the opportunity to show some cool demos that demonstrate the breadth and sophistication of APIs you can discover and use in Mashape. We focused on Machine Learning
, Natural Language Processing
, and Sentiment Analysis APIs
Below are links to demos shown during the presentation, as well as links to relevant news and references that point out to the growing popularity and importance of machine learning in the API realm.

Wikipedia defines Machine Learning
as “a branch of artificial intelligence that deals with the construction and study of systems that can learn from data.”
(If you arrived here looking for how to add or list an API to Mashape, you check out the Tutorials section here
Below is a compilation of APIs that have benefited from Machine Learning in one way or another, we truly are living in the future so strap into your rocketship and prepare for blastoff.
