Build intelligent serverless apps in minutes with Algorithmia and AWS Lambda

Algorithmia’s is pleased to announce a new, built-in AWS Lambda Node.js blueprint, making it easy to call the Algorithmia API in response to events from Amazon Kinesis, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon S3, and other Amazon web services.

With Algorithmia you have access to the largest marketplace of algorithms in the world in less than five lines of code. Leverage state-of-the-art algorithms to recognize patterns in data, extract visual knowledge, understand audio, classify unstructured data, and derive meaning from language.

AWS Lambda is a service that lets you run code without provisioning or managing servers, making it easy to build applications that respond quickly to new information. Lambda manages the resources for you automatically.
