Visualizing the News with Vivagraph.js by Max De Marzi.

From the post:

Today I want to introduce you to VivaGraphJS – a JavaScript Graph Drawing Library made by Andrei Kashcha of Yasiv. It supports rendering graphs using WebGL, SVG or CSS formats and currently supports a force directed layout. The Library provides an API which tracks graph changes and reflect changes on the rendering surface which makes it fantastic for graph exploration.

The post includes AlchemyAPI (entity extraction), DBpedia (additional information), Feedzilla (news feeds), and Neo4j (graphs).

The technology rocks but the content, well, your mileage will vary.

From the documentation:

AlchemyAPI utilizes natural language processing technology and machine learning algorithms to analyze content, extracting semantic meta-data: information about people, places, companies, topics, facts & relationships, authors, languages, and more.

API endpoints are provided for performing content analysis on Internet-accessible web pages, posted HTML or text content.

To use AlchemyAPI, you need an access key. If you do not have an API key, you must first obtain one.

I haven’t used it but it looks like a useful service for information products meant for an end user.

Do you use such services? Any others you would suggest?
