I'm experienced in writing well-researched, in-depth articles, blog posts, e-books, and other online content. I've written articles about APIs, machine learning, deep learning, computer vision, GIS and spatial analysis, mapping, and many other technologies.
I'm currently a regular contributor to ProgrammableWeb, the world's leading source of news and information about APIs. I cover breaking news, in-depth analysis, and product reviews.

I've also written a few e-books for AlchemyAPI, an IBM company, that aims to democratize breakthroughs in deep learning-based artificial intelligence. The e-books focus on unstructured data and deep learning.
Free e-book that covers the types of solutions organizations should consider when it comes to solving the many problems associated with unstructured data. Methods covered include data analytics, natural language processing, computer vision, and location intelligence.
Free e-book that covers why it's so important for organizations to have a data analysis strategy and provides insight into the information crisis that many companies are facing today.
Free e-book that features six practical deep learning use cases including voice-activated assistants, recommendation engines, image recognition, image tagging, pattern recognition, and advertising.
AlchemyAPI also created an infographic based on this e-book.
Article highlighting the top 10 machine learning APIs on ProgrammableWeb; API capabilities include image tagging, object recognition, speech recognition, predictive modeling, and much more.
This article is an in-depth review of REST United, highlighting key features of the platform. This article also takes a brief look at developer experience (DX) when it comes to REST United automatically generated SDKs.
Article that covers the increasing use of convolutional neural networks (CNNs) to improve computer vision methods. The article features companies providing image recognition platforms that include automatic photo tagging and classification.
Mapping is one of the most popular categories on ProgrammableWeb. This article highlights different types of GIS, mapping, and location-based solutions.
Article that features some of the most widely used mapping APIs and geodata sources; Google Maps, Bing Maps, MapQuest, OpenLayers, etc.
Article that takes a detailed look at three of the most popular weather platforms and APIs: Forecast.io, Weather Underground and World Weather Online.
Article that highlights how API Keys, cloud credentials, and other sensitive data is regularly exposed on public code sharing sites like GitHub, cloud service providers like Amazon Web Services, and sometimes even in mobile applications.
Article covering the legal issues related to Minecraft software development, including updates to the EULA, software licenses and copyright infringement claims (DMCA), and Microsoft's recent acquisition of Mojang for $2.5 billion.
A look at several companies using computer vision technology, most of which specialize in image-recognition platforms and applications. A few of these companies also provide platforms that feature natural language processing (NLP) capabilities.
Article that highlights the growing trend of companies initially providing public APIs and an open platform, only to enact API restrictions or even close access to the platform later on. Article inludes an interactive timeline (on CodePen) that highlights Twitter API changes and the responses to those changes from developers and leaders in the API industry.
Article emphasizing the importance of developer experience (DX) when it comes to the success of an API. Whether an API is designed to be integrated with complex enterprise systems or simple third-party apps, it is the developer experience (DX) that determines whether the API will be widely adopted or shunned by the developer community.
