free api methods part 1

Building on last month’s post, for a fixed amount of time, I’m making various API methods discussed on our website freely available. For example, you can GET arxiv figure data using the following curl, where of course the query string must correspond to data in our database: curl -k ‘https://plot2txt-staging.us-east-1.elasticbeanstalk.com/record?type=figure&source=astro&label=temp’ Here we’re requesting figures fromContinue Reading free api methods part 1

got data?

got data?

For some amount of time (ie., until the bandwidth costs add up 🙂 ) you can download the figures extracted from arxiv documents, during the development and testing of the search API described in prior posts. If you have the AWS CLI installed, getting the figure meta data (from which you can create download URLs)Continue Reading got data?

new api method for data image search

new api method for data image search

As mentioned, after doing some experiments for the KDnuggets article, I bundled some of the existing API methods into a new one, which will extract from a page figures that have x/y scaling information. The JSON output is well suited to elasticsearch or your favorite flavor of NoSQL eg., an extract of the response: [{“input”:”tmp/quant-ph0002044-9.png”,Continue Reading new api method for data image search

We’re very grateful to Dr Piatetsky-Shapiro for the chance to publish an item in kdnuggets, check it out here. In the process of putting some examples together for the article, I think I’ve finally landed on a useful workflow and schema for the figure data search engine, hoping to get that out asap; stay tunedContinue Reading kdnuggets

arxiv mining

arxiv mining

Some time ago I launched a little project, mining data from arxiv; you can read about it in other blog posts. Specifically, I modeled figures from about 500k figures as Gaussian mixture models, in order to create some features, so figures might be ultimately represented as graphs for comparison. More ordinary methods might suffice tooContinue Reading arxiv mining

A couple of talented friends and developers are contributing to a single page app for web, and an Android app. With these in place, we’ll finally have user friendly applications around the p2t API methods. Shortly we’ll look at promotion and marketing, and we were thus very grateful when Michael Burke of tech press reachedContinue Reading tech press
