List of 40+ Machine Learning APIs



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 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.

Here's What Futurist Ray Kurzweil Thinks Life Will Be Like In The Next 20 Years
Here's What Futurist Ray Kurzweil Thinks Life Will Be Like In The Next 20 Years
  • Our brains will extend to the cloud, which will allow us to learn new things at any age.
  • We will be able to selectively erase pieces of our memory.
  • We’ll be in augmented reality at all times.
  • By 2029, machines will be able to match the intelligence of humans, and they’ll be able to make us laugh and cry.
  • Around the 2030s, tiny “nanobots” able to repair and preserve our organs will keep us healthier and smarter.
  • 3D printing will be even more common than it is today, with public 3D printing stations for people to print out clothes, toys, and anything else.
  • Within 25 years, computers will be the size of a blood cell and we’ll be able to connect it to the brain without the need for surgery.
  • Society will reach a state of “technological singularity” in 2045 where technology enables superhuman machine intelligences to emerge and people and machines become deeply integrated.


5. Polygonization

This is my attempt at turning images into nicely proportioned polygons.  I didn’t get far enough to get decent stills.  Instead, twiddling parameters fractures, deconstructs, obscures and reveals these portraits.
