UrlAi.com – who are you?


We have created a new service called UrlAi.com, the basic concept is to run blog posts through a bunch of classifiers over time. To begin with we use Gender, Age, Mood and Tonality but the system is dynamic so we can add new classifiers at any time. If you have created a classifier that would fit on urlai.com let us know!

Some ideas

We have many ideas of how we can develop this project further, for example, now we are only showing a summary pie chart, it would be nice to see posts over time. User feedback for online training and classifier improvement may be possible. Another thing we could do is to have classified posts searchable, for example, enabling users to see the mood of everyone who mentioned ‘Avatar’.

Some kudos

Just want to thank the people that has been involved in this project, Roger Karlsson for coding, Johanna Forsman for the awesome logo and Mattias Östmar for sharing his Tonality and Mood classifiers. Mattias has also contributed with many ideas around this, being the idea fountain he is 😀

Connection pool bug fix

Some users have experienced

“Timeout expired.  The timeout period elapsed prior to obtaining a connection from the pool.  This may have occurred because all pooled connections were in use and max pool size was reached.”

This happened because some database connections persisted longer than expected and as a result the connection pool was drained. This became obvious with the release of the URL API. The bug should have been fixed now.

I’m also really happy to see that we are getting a lot new users since the introduction of the URL API!

New API for classification

We are really happy to announce that we just have released an URL API to make it easier to access classifiers. This means that users can classify via an URL, for example finding out the language of the text snippet from Wiki:

“En apprentissage automatique, le terme de classifieur linéaire représente une famille d’algorithmes de classement statistique.”


You can also classify URLs directly. For example this call confirms that Rogers blog is written by a male:


The new API is documented here.
