Given the content explosion we’re experiencing on the web today, the need to aggregate and understand news and web content at scale and as close to real-time as possible is more important now than ever before. The News API will help you source and analyze specific, relevant and actionable content from blogs and news sources from across the web. We’re monitoring the Internet 24/7 to provide a constant stream of content so you can keep your finger on the pulse with the most up-to-date news content and data within your applications and solutions.
The World’s news data, at your fingertips
The News API enables users to search, source and understand news content from across the web in real-time. By harnessing the power of Machine Learning and NLP-driven technology, users can stay ahead of the curve by collecting news content and extracting what is relevant and important to them.
You can use our News API to build intelligent content-driven apps and solutions by searching and filtering thousands of news sources, extracting the key data points and delivering valuable and actionable insights.
1. Search & Filter
We crawl and index thousands of news sources every day and analyze their content using our NLP-powered Text Analysis Engine to bring you an enriched and flexible news data source.
Our powerful search and filtering capabilities allow users to source and collect the news that matters most to them. Users can build their queries on a variety of data points, including:
– Entities (people, places, products, organizations, etc.)
– Writer Sentiment (positive, negative or neutral opinion)
– Categories (industry-specific taxonomies)
– Time (down to minute level, and up to 60 days of historical data)
– Outlets (news sources and blogs)
– Authors (journalists and influencers)
– Language (English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French and German – more to come)
We currently monitor an ever-growing list of thousands of sources from across the world. Given the amount of noise out there, we are focusing on quality over quantity by providing access to high quality and trusted sources.
2. Extract key data points
The AYLIEN News API goes beyond just sourcing news. We extract key data points from news content generating an enriched, valuable and actionable data source that can be used to power intelligent news aggregators, content-driven apps and news dashboard. These data points include;
– Entities mentioned (People, Places, Products, Organizations, etc)
– Categories (according to industry-specific taxonomies)
– Sentiment Analysis of writer’s opinion
– Language Detection (English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French and German – with more to come)
– Automated article summaries
– Hashtags (automatically generated for each story)
This data is extracted in a matter of seconds from the time the article is published, giving you speedy access to the key data points in the world’s news content.
News API users can build complex search queries to query the news like they would a database, giving them tailored streams of news and content. Try it yourself by building some test quesries here.
3. Deliver insights
Social media performance
We continuously monitor social media to measure the mention performance of each story, and profile this performance over time to give users an understanding of the increasing or decreasing popularity of the story.
Sentiment and category breakdown
We leverage the data points we extract from each and every story to help users answer questions like; What % of articles are talking about category X? or What % of articles are positive, negative or neutral?
Volume over time
We provide historical data for the previous 60 days, enabling users to clearly see how many stories match a query in a given time window.
Our word cloud capabilities provide users with a snapshot of the most-used keywords or entities within a given time period.
Informative histograms can be easily created to provide snapshots about a query, an author, outlet or even vertical.
Integration: As Developer-friendly as it gets
Integrating with our News API is simple. In addition to our extensive and interactive documentation, we’re providing code snippets for the most popular programming languages to help developers get up and running in no time. Results are provided in a well-structured JSON format.
