Last weekend we had the privilege of being a sponsor to the HumanAPI Hackathon.  The Human API is a platform that lets developers easily and securely integrate health data into their apps.  It lets you aggregate all your health information from other providers/APIs and selectively access health information in groups (e.g. Activities, Blood glucose, etc).  This gives developers a holistic view of a person’s health information that can be used to contribute to the progress in the medical/health industry through apps. The 24-hackathon ended with 30 creative projects ranging from a ‘Mommy’ app (that constantly nags you to get…

The APIs below are a Sentiment Analysis subset group from that Machine Learning API list.  Sentiment Analysis refers to “the application of natural language processing, computational linguistics, and text analytics to identify and extract subjective information in source materials.” We hope you’ll it find useful!

We had the opportunity to ask Chatterbox co-founder, Dr. Stuart Battersby (right), on how his startup’s Sentiment Analysis service is different from the rest.  He also explains how Mashape enables him to focus on rolling out new features, while monetizing the API.

What is Chatterbox?

Chatterbox is a Wayra London company, and a spin-out from Queen Mary University.  Using proprietary algorithms, Chatterbox identifies and understands brand (b)advocates in social media.  Whilst Chatterbox can be accessed via a web browser, integration is very important to our customers and we feel that a flexible service gives Chatterbox a new USP.  The earliest…

Chatterbox Analytics (a spin-out company from Queen Mary, University of London) is pleased to announce the release of the new sentiment detection API for social texts. This API is designed specifically to classify short social messages, such as tweets, into positive or negative categories. The system uses advanced statistical models trained (they have partnered with Intel to use their super computer for model training) on 68 million tweets. The detection can handle slang, common misspellings, emoticons, hashtags, etc. The API adopts a freemium model – a free version and a paid version which gives users more flexibility. The system currently…
