The updated API Categorization Service provides better categorization and more flexibility for applications.

This enhancement to the Categorization Service allows us to continue to assist our media, ecommerce, advertising, CRM, and other API users to automatically organize their content.

TextWise is proud to announce the release of an enhanced categorization scheme for the SemanticHacker API Categorization Service. The update to the Categorization Service provides better text categorization and more flexibility to configure categories.

“We want to optimize the SemanticHacker API to the fullest extent for all our users,” said Mary McKenna, TextWise CEO. “This enhancement to the Categorization Service allows us to continue to assist our media, ecommerce, advertising, CRM, and other API users to automatically organize their content.”

The update to the API Categorization Service call includes:

  •     New terminology from across the web included in the 2010 Categorization semantic dictionary
  •     More granularity in the category scheme
  •     Removal of noisy ‘Regional’ (geographic) categories
  •     Option to use either long or short category labels
  •     Option to specify the number of categories returned (1 – 5)

The Categorization Service update will be rolled out to all users by Tuesday, October 19th. This change does not affect the Signatures, Match, or Concept Services on the API.
