  • SCHWAG ALERT We’ve got hoodies (as many as you can take)Prize! Apple TV for best in show using our Image API Prize! Kindle for best in show using our Text API We’re hiring!
  • Using the MetaLayer Text API
  • Our Text API offers methods for extracting contextual featuresfrom text documents using various forms of entity extraction. •Find place names in documents and turn them into lat/lon coordinates for mapping •Perform auto-tagging and classification using uncommon keywords •Utilize our sentiment analysis algorithms
  • ARCHITECTUREBuilt using pyNLTK (python natural language toolkit)Brown Corpus (Brown University Standard Corpus of Present-DayAmerican English)Extended to deal with short form text like TweetsCorpus can be extended to optimize the API for specific use cases.60,000 items per minute on a single serverScales horizontally for ‘bigger data’ streams
  • FUNCTIONSSentiment AnalysisTagging (Uncommon Keywords)Location DisambiguationBundle (a Buffet of Awesome)
  • FORMATPost: “This is some excellent text that needs to be tagged especially ifwe can pick the location Philadelphia, PA out of it.”Response Example: { "status": "success", "method": "bundle", "service":"datalayer", "response": { "datalayer": { "text": "this is some excellent textthat needs to be tagged especially if we can pick the locationPhiladelphia PA out of it", "locations": [ { "latitude":39.952300000000001, "confidence": 10.0, "name": "Philadelphia, PA, US","longitude": -75.162400000000005 } ], "sentiment":0.63960214906683133, "tags": [ "excellent", "text", "location","Philadelphia", "PA" ] } } }

  • Using the MetaLayer Image API
  • Our Image API offers methods for extracting contextual featuresfrom photos and image documents. •Find all the objects in a photo along with their relative coordinates in the frame •Extract color/histogram profiles •Parse text from the image to make it actionable
  • ARCHITECTUREBuilt using Teeseract OCR with a proprietary training set.Extensible and Adaptive20,000 items per minute on a single serverScales horizontallyParses JPG and PNG documents
  • FUNCTIONSColor Profile (all colors in an image)Histogram (the distribution of color in an image)Optical Character Recognition (OCR)Object RecognitionBundle (Awesome Reloaded!)
  • MetaLayer Dashboard API *Coming soon young, Padawan.*
  • Our Dashboard API offers methods for interacting withMetaLayer Dashboard products through scripting. •Remotely create and configure dashboard environments •Push data to RESTful Dashboard hook (ex. real-time streams) •Poll/Request data from Dashboard hook (ex. historic data) •Analytics from Dashboard activity streams •Create data mashups, consume the JSON output
  • ARCHITECTUREDashboard is build with Python and DjangoAdds GUI elements to working with APIsDrag and drop data science. Anyone can use it to mash up data.Background tasks distributed across horizontal servers.
