Zemanta , the Slovenian startup that won the first Seedcamp competition (and subsequently funding from Union Square Ventures , Eden Ventures and The Accelerator Group), has just launched a public semantic API here at the Le Web conference in Paris, as well as a front side SDK. Zemanta is basically a platform that aims to help online content producers find related content from across the web to enhance their publication(s). A blog, an article or a web page can be fed into its system, which then recognizes it and returns suggested images, smart links, keywords and relevant related stories from the web. Based on the input, the engine recommends links to content from: Amazon, our own CrunchBase , Wikipedia, Freebase, MusicBrainz, Flickr, Daylife, and social networks.
