IBM said it has bought the company because it is complementary to its own development of next generation cognitive computing apps.
The move brings 40,000 developers into its own Watson framework.
The Denver based company was founded in 2005 and its software processes billions of API calls per month, IBM said. It’s available in eight different languages – English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Swedish.
IBM didn’t say how much it paid for AlchemyAPI but it will integrate the firm’s software into its own Watson offerings.
