New Rosette API Brings Basis Technology’s Multilingual Text Analysis To The Next Level

April 12th, 2016 |

Text analysis technology has become key to verifying identity, understanding customers, anticipating world events, and even uncovering crime. It also poses some of the biggest challenges of big data. Basis Technology, a leader in multilingual text analytics for more than twenty years, has recently released the Rosette API to address these challenges, allowing API users to customize their text analysis environment and use models specifically tailored to industry use cases.

Rosette is already widely used in large organizations including Airbnb, Luminoso, Recorded Future, Tamr, and Yelp to agencies across the US intelligence community to solve a variety of critical language processing challenges including things from search and social media to national security and financial compliance. The new Rosette API adds even more advanced capabilities to existing offerings — sentiment analysis, relationship extraction, and document categorization …

European Banking Authority Opens a New Era of Open Banking

September 8th, 2015 |

Required API-based Banking Ecosystem Will Give Customers More Control and Insight

The European Commission (EC) has mandated that banks must provide standardized API access across the EU as part of the Directive on Payment Services (PSD2), a set of rules to modernize payment services. It includes a proposition called Access to Account (XS2A) that requires banks to offer an API to third parties under the supervision of the European Banking Authority. The goal of this directive is to provide a variety of benefits to consumers through a clear, standard ruleset meant to open the market and increase innovation. PSD2 is essentially opening a new era of open banking which is, understandably, causing some concern among traditional banking institutions. Open banking, sometimes referred to as OpenAPI banking, is a term to describe the use of APIs to open access to bank accounts and data to accredited devel…

Surveying 1000 APIs – Think APIs are for Startups Only? Think Again!

June 7th, 2012 |

As the API Ecosystem grows, at 3scale we often asked where growth is fastest and how to characterize certain trends. While this is challenging to do, sites like Programmableweb provides great data of many public APIs and regularly feature trend analysis (see John Musser’s excellent “Hot or Not” Presentation Gluecon for example).

To dig deeper though, we decided to try to classify a snapshot of 1000 of the latest APIs recently registered on Programmableweb, with some surprising results.

The study took the latest 1000 APIs registered in the Programmableweb directory prior to the 2nd of May 2012 and analysed them in various ways. Hence the sample stretches from the 17th of January until the 2nd of May 2012. The directory is now over 6000 APIs and those latest 1000 were added in just 90 days – so it’s recent snapshot and should tell us something. The APIs were classified in a n…
