Prediction API – Machine Learning from Google by Istvan Szegedi.
From the post:
One of the exciting APIs among the 50+ APIs offered by Google is the Prediction API. It provides pattern matching and machine learning capabilities like recommendations or categorization. The notion is similar to the machine learning capabilities that we can see in other solutions (e.g. in Apache Mahout): we can train the system with a set of training data and then the applications based on Prediction API can recommend (“predict”) what products the user might like or they can categories spams, etc.
In this post we go through an example how to categorize SMS messages – whether they are spams or valuable texts (“hams”).
Nice introduction to Google’s Prediction API.
A use case for topic map authoring would be to route content to appropriate experts for further evaluation.
