Google Sheets + Algorithmia = Machine Learning Spreadsheets

Spreadsheets are an amazing tool. Whether you cut your teeth on Lotus 1-2-3, grew up with Excel, or hopped straight into the Google Docs universe, spreadsheets have been a key tool for everything from planning your personal finances to mulling over your KPIs.

But, have you ever used a spreadsheet to extract sentiment from your users’ tweets? To perform advanced outlier detection after detrending your sales numbers? Probably not, because most spreadsheet tools didn’t have the power of machine learning baked right in. Until now… Read More…

Video Metadata Extraction: See it in Action!

Add emotion detection to your livestreaming service.  Find all the faces in your security tapes. Detect the make and model of every car that passes your shop.  Flag nudity in users’ uploaded videos.

These are just a few of the cool things you can do with our powerful Video Metadata Extraction microservice, which allows you to analyze an entire video with our many image data-extraction algorithms.  But don’t simpy take our word for it — if you want to see how powerful this tool is, take a peek at our live demo:

See our Video Transform in Action

Recently, we introduced you to Video Transform, a meta-algorithm which can take any of our image transformations — such as Colorization, Saliency, Style Transfer, or Resolution Enhancement — and apply it to a video instead!
…but if picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth 24-30,000 words per second (sorry, bad videography humor there). So instead of just telling you about this cool feature, we’d like to show you, with a brand new Video Toolbox demonstration!

Combine Cloud Algorithms to Build a Feature-Rich Website Mapper & Summarizer

website mapper & summarizerOnce upon a time, site mappers were arcane scripts which could take hours or days to examine a single website.  But, thanks to scalable & interoperable cloud algorithms, it now takes only minutes… and includes a multitude of handy features powered by machine learning: auto-tagging, summarization, page-ranking, and more!

You may have already seen our Python tutorials for building a simple web-scraper or extracting structured data from a webpage, but today we’ll highlight a demo built entirely in JavaScript which combines five cloud-hosted microservices into a single useful tool:

All of this takes just a few simple lines of simple Javascript Code, and zero additional infrastructure.  We invite you to try out the sitemapper demo and, if you like what you see, try building your own!

Map, summarize, and tag any website
