Halloween launches / Релизы на Хеллоуин

We are pleased to report new features in the Topic API — system for realtime topic clustering of documents: articles, blog posts, tweets.


We have improved the algorithm to avoid situations where a preposition would be omitted — helps a lot for Russian.

We have added a possibility to filter clusters by time range: use params startDate and endDate in the format yyyy-MM-dd. This feature should allow you to build trends over time!

We made the /articles/cluster end point to support GET — more sensible when integrating with frontends

Enjoy and Happy Halloween!

Мы рады сообщить о новых фичах в Topic API — системе для построения тематических кластеров документов: статей, блог-постов, твитов.

Мы улучшили алгоритм таким образом, чтобы названия кластеров включали предлоги. Например, раньше кластер мог называется “Питере”, теперь он будет называться “В Питере” (конечно, в зависимости от ваших данных).

Теперь кластера можно строить для конкретного промежутка времени: используйте параметры startDate и endDate в формате yyyy-MM-dd. Теперь вы можете строить тренды!

Энд-пойнт /articles/cluster теперь доступен по GET — это более дружественный тип запроса для интеграции с фронтэндами.

Удачи и классного Хэллоуина!

Text analytics APIs: simplified pricing

We focus a lot on unifying access to our text analytics APIs. One of such areas is pricing. We obviously want more users to have access to our systems at meaningful prices.

In the course of the last month we have unified and decreased prices for all our APIs. Here are the changes:

RSA API (entity level sentiment detection for Russian):
Overage fee for Basic plan is USD $0,02 (was: USD $0,05). This matches the overage fee on all other plans.
PRO plan is now USD $99 instead of $299.
ULTRA plan is now USD $199 instead of $350.

FUXI API (sentiment detection for Chinese):
We changed our subscription plan Basic to allow for 15,000 texts a month for just $10 instead of 500 / day.
PRO plan allows you to 100,000 texts a month for $99.

Topic API (searchable topics for texts in Russian)
Basic plan allows for sending 1,000 messages for $19. Remember, that one message can contain up to 50 texts. If you were only uploading texts you could upload 50,000 of them.

The following APIs continue to be FREE:

ConnectedWords (find semantically similar English words to the ones given)
SemanticCloud (frequency word clouds for Russian along with lemmas)

Our team is always listening to you, our users — let us know, what APIs you would like to have in addition, what features to existing APIs and what volumes you would like to handle.

Enjoy the journey of extracting signal from your textual lakes!

Making sense: The API is FREE. Use it today and give us your feedback!

What if you have a bunch of or just one long text in any language and none of summarisation tools work for you?

If you have been in such a situation and also you have texts from social media or news sources that you cannot always trust in terms of how clean of noise they are, do they have URLs, hashtags, people names, addresses and so on.

And if you wanted to sift through the texts with some filter, like I want only nouns and only verbs to capture who did what.
Or I want only adjectives and nouns to capture with what colour do texts describe arbitrary objects.
Or I just want to have links out of all texts.

Now you can do all of that with one call to our SemanticCloud API.

Let’s pick the following tweet with hashtags and an URL in it and a mix of two languages: Russian and English:
Я голосую за сильного президента, за сильную независимую Россию и за тех, кто привык спрашивать только с себя, а не винить в своей лени остальных! I vote for a strong president, for a strong Russia! #выборыпрезидента #RussiaElections2018 #ЯГолосую #ЗаПутина #Putin

And let’s ask the system to output nouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives, names, hyperlinks.

Two top words by count are: strong and сильный (translation pair)

“word”: “strong”,
“stem”: “strong”,
“partOfSpeech”: “Unknown”,
“count”: 2,
“lemma”: false,
“keyword”: false

“word”: “сильный”,
“stem”: “сильный”,
“partOfSpeech”: “Adjective”,
“count”: 2,
“lemma”: true,
“keyword”: false

But we also parsed the words out of hashtags:

“word”: “яголосую”,
“stem”: “яголос”,
“partOfSpeech”: “Unknown”,
“count”: 1,
“lemma”: false,
“keyword”: false

“word”: “выборыпрезидента”,
“stem”: “выборыпрезидент”,
“partOfSpeech”: “Unknown”,
“count”: 1,
“lemma”: false,
“keyword”: false

and a URL:

“word”: “”,
“stem”: “”,
“partOfSpeech”: “Hyperlink”,
“count”: 1,
“lemma”: false,
“keyword”: false

In addition we can ask the API to give us only top N words (by frequencies) along with lemmas (where applicable). And, more importantly, we can ask to count our secret word, that we are monitoring. Whether or not our secret word is present in the texts, it will be returned back:

“word”: “петербург”,
“stem”: “петербург”,
“partOfSpeech”: “Noun”,
“count”: 0,
“lemma”: true,
“keyword”: true

The API is FREE. Use it today and give us your feedback!

NEW API: ConnectedWords

Hello and Happy New Year!

New Year – New API. We have launched new API called ConnectedWords. We have trained a neural network using word2vec approach on a number of English texts. As input you can supply an array of keywords for which you’d like to get another list of connected or related words.


Available end-points:

Here is an example:

For word “launch” the API produces the following connected words:

“launched 0.5948931514907372”,

How can one use the API?

1. Making your search engine smarter: expand the result set to documents containing related words. This helps you solve the issue of zero hit searches.

2. Spice up your writing. Are you a journalist / blogger / student and would like to add a flavour to your text? Send in a few words and get a set of words, that might help make your texts more interesting and engaging.

In the future we would like to add support for other languages and train on different types of texts, like social media, news, blogs etc. If you have more ideas for how to make the system more useful for your needs, get in touch!


https://RSA API

We have transitioned the RSA API to SSL. This means, that not only mashape layer is addressed with https, but also communication mashape->our API server is encrypted with SSL. This makes your communication with the API even more secure. As with previous releases, there is no action needed to continue using the API.

Thanks & happy sentiment analysing!

Security update to RSA API systems

Last week Insider team has rolled out an important security update to our RSA API systems.

It was essentially a maintenance release in which our databases were added an additional layer of security. Now any data you submit to the API is securely processed within our API cloud. There is no action required on your part to continue using the API.

Still not using RSA API? Subscribe today and get 200 messages a day for free! 100+ firms and individuals trust our sentiment analysis API.
