By integrating this API into your app or website, you may improve your clients’ shopping experience. Also, you may highlight and focus on specific products based on their content, improving the usability and conversion rate of your services.
Before getting started, let’s take a look at what API stands for and how it works. API is an abbreviation for Application Programming Interface; a group of processes and functions that allow you to use a service without having to develop it from scratch. In the case of text categorization API, we use a service that processes text in order to categorize it according to different criteria specified in the API.
How Does It Work?Text classification API uses a machine learning model called a classifier to assign a tag or label to a piece of unstructured text based on the contents of that text. This model is built using training data that has already been classified by humans. The model then learns from this data to classify new text in the same way as the training data. The most basic text classification system employs three steps:To train the model, firstly a large amount of human-classified text is needed. For example, if you want to create an email classifier, you would need a database of emails that have already been classified into different categories (spam, promotions, etc.).Once the training is complete, the model can be used to classify text that has not yet been classified.Secondly, use the training data to train a classifier using any predictive modelling tool (e.g., regression or classification tree models).Once trained, use the classifier to classify new text based on its content and characteristics (e.g., word count).The two most common methods for creating an email classifier are Naive Bayes and Support Vector Machines (SVM). The Naive Bayes algorithm assumes that all features are independent (i.e., unrelated) from each other and can be applied to binary classification problems, such as spam vs. not spam. SVM is a classification method that seeks to classify unlabeled data into different categories by learning from pre-labeled data. In other words, with SVM we can solve multi-classification problems such as spam vs. phishing vs. not spam. Other useful things about Text Categorization APIs:It uses machine learning algorithms and natural language processing techniques to process unstructured dataIn most implementations, it has two components: an endpoint and a consoleIf
This API categorizes text based on the IPTC standard. Supporting Spanish and English.
To make use of it, you must first:
1- Go to IPTC Text Classification API and simply click on the button “Subscribe for free” to start using the API.
2- After signing up in Zyla API Hub, you’ll be given your personal API key. Using this one-of-a-kind combination of numbers and letters, you’ll be able to use, connect, and manage APIs!
3- Employ the different API endpoints depending on what you are looking for.
