AlchemyAPI - transforming text into knowledge


AlchemyAPI provides content owners and web developers with a rich suite of content analysis and meta-data annotation tools.

Expose the semantic richness hidden in any content, using named entity extraction, keyword extraction, sentiment analysis, document categorization, concept tagging, language detection, and structured content scraping. Use AlchemyAPI to enhance your website, blog, content management system, or semantic web application.

AlchemyAPI uses statistical natural language processing technology and machine learning algorithms to analyze your content, extracting semantic meta-data: information about people, places, companies, topics, languages, and more.

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2)

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers.

Amazon EC2’s simple web service interface allows you to obtain and configure capacity with minimal friction. It provides you with complete control of your computing resources and lets you run on Amazon’s proven computing environment. Amazon EC2 reduces the time required to obtain and boot new server instances to minutes, allowing you to quickly scale capacity, both up and down, as your computing requirements change. Amazon EC2 changes the economics of computing by allowing you to pay only for capacity that you actually use. Amazon EC2 provides developers the tools to build failure resilient applications and isolate themselves from common failure scenarios.
