More than 800 algorithms are available on the marketplace, providing the smarts needed to do various tasks in the fields of machine learning, audio and visual processing, and even computer vision.

Algorithm developers can host their work on the site and charge a fee per-use to developers who integrate the algorithm into their own work. The platform encourages further additions to its library through a bounty system, which lets users request algorithms that researchers familiar with the field can contribute from their work or develop from scratch for a fee.

To demonstrate the platform’s algorithm hosting tools, the Algorithmia team built a simple app using seven user-contributed algorithms that visualizes what a crawler does at it…
