2007 Top 10 December 20, 2007Posted by Andre Vellino in Java, Search, User Interface, Visualization.
Here’s a list of the top 10 neat things (I would have said “cool” but I’m from a different generation 🙂 ) that I stumbled across this year:
- Google’s Charting API – an http REST API for generating charts
- Intellij IDEA – a Java IDE to rival Eclipse
- Hibernate – an object-relational DB mapping framework for Java.
- Freebase – a database commons
- Toyota’s robot – that plays the violin
- Holographically Reduced Representations – as a way of modeling memory
- Quintura – most promising UI for search refinement
- PowerSet – interesting NLP-based search engine
- KeyPass – useful cross-platform password generation / keyring
