We’ve had a busy weekend for the SpringSense Meaning Recognition API, with three Hackathons around the world featuring v2 of the API.
We were proud prize sponsors for the latter two, with the Best Use of the SpringSense API Prize comprising of a $500 Amazon.com gift card and a $12,000 worth of API usage over a year — a total prize value of $12,500.
We’d like to congratulate Lance Nanek who won our Angelhack NYC prize. Lance combined Google Glass, an Android handset and the API to create a very cool app to help nurses in their role. See his demo here.
Special thanks to Mashape, our API hub for their support in getting the API into the hands of the Hackathon developers.
The API is available now on Mashape with a free usage tier.
