Sassbook AI Developer API for Content Automation Is Now Live

We are excited to announce that the Sassbook Developer API for both content generation and content summarization is now publicly available. The text summarization API has been available for some time privately and was released a couple of months back. The text content generation API is now available, so the developer API now covers functionality of both web applications, the Sassbook AI Text Summarizer and the Sassbook AI Writer.

There has been tremendous interest in the capabilities that these web applications provide, so customers are able to incorporate them into their own workflows and custom applications. Many clients also needed to process large volumes of documents (especially for the Summarizer), so programmatic access was a requirement for them.

For content generation, it was about incorporating the capability into the customer’s applications and also about customizing how the snippet of text was being generated and presented to their users. Customers were also asking for a few other higher-level features, that we plan to incorporate into the API eventually.

Developer API Subscription Plans

Customers needing the API access varied in their usage patterns. Some of them were happy existing customers of the web applications but needed the API for some use cases. Others exclusively needed the API, but the volume of usage varied quite a bit.

In the end, we settled on two kinds of API plans:

  1. For the former group requiring both web-app access as well as the API access, there are free, monthly credits attached to each subscription plan. If the credits are exceeded, they are charged for the additional usage.
  2. For exclusive API access, the developer API plan is added. This plan features a free-trial and a one-time fee after the trial. Thereafter, the pricing is fully metered (usage-based) and charged monthly.

You can find the details of how these are structured in the Developer API page.

Developer API Documentation and Metered Pricing

Metered pricing is based on the amount of text processed, including both input and generated text. The pricing unit is 1000 tokens (1KT), which is about 750 words. The pricing is different for each API. As the volume of processing becomes higher, the per-unit pricing becomes lower for each subsequent higher tier.

For documentation and pricing of the specific API, please refer to their respective pages:

We think these APIs will serve those looking for simple, powerful, and highly-scalable AI content generation and AI text summarization quite well.

Enhanced AI Content Writer and AI Summary Generator Engines For Even Better Content Automation

Enhanced AI Content Writer and AI Summary Generator Engines For Even Better Content Automation


We have been continuously improving core AI capabilities as well as user-facing capabilities ever since we started back in 2020. The engines have been kept current and issues addressed based on your extensive feedback.

Being a rapidly progressing technology area, keeping pace and adopting relevant improvements unveil significantly better capabilities and experiences for our customers. Further, some of them will enable us to provide new and adjacent products relevant to our customer workflows.

Recently, we released significant AI capability enhancements for both our products the AI automatic content generator and the AI automatic summary generator as explained below.

Brand New AI Content Generator Engine

We have been looking to enhance our AI Writer engine for some time to make it more current and one that provides more flexibility to support our plans moving forward. You will experience more contextual and varied content generation with this new AI engine. The engine also allows us to better customize generated content based on the supplied prompt and prior generations. Essentially, the new model makes it easier to add a new topic/domain with much less effort compared to the previous engine.

In addition, the new engine has better support for generating longer completions each time, so users (especially subscribers of Sassbook AI paid plans) should be able to enjoy longer generations for each attempt. This involves mitigating the commonplace occurrence of loss of context as the number of words increase in modern language models.

That said, we had already increased the number of words slightly earlier for both our Standard and Premium plans.

Control the behavior, length, and number of candidates for AI content generation

More importantly, as mentioned earlier, this engine will enable us to enhancements and new additions to automatic content generation capabilities going forward.

New and Enhanced Extractive Summarization Engine

Sassbook AI Summarizer had always been distinguished by its abstractive summarization software, which is able to summarize articles much like an expert human would. The extractive mode was thus not emphasized enough, and it worked well enough already, being a rather mature technology.

However, we realized that customers do use the extractive mode alongside the abstractive mode quite a bit. Given the tremendous progress made in this domain employing deep-learning models, we decided to switch to a most modern and capable extractive engine, at the cost of a slight reduction in speed, especially for large documents.

We are confident this change will make the AI Summarizer truly the best AI summary generator out there.

Do try out the new capabilities and let us know how they fare.  Lookout for more good stuff coming your way!

Sassbook AI Summarizer: Professional automatic text summarizer using AI released!

Sassbook AI Summarizer: The modern automatic text summarizer using deep AI

We at Sassbook AI just released the second of our AI content automation tools, the Sassbook AI Summarizer! This is after several months of hard work to bring state-of-the-art AI technology advancements to automated text summaries. Despite the presence of numerous summarization tools on the market, we decided a modern, quality solution that befits 2020 and beyond is long overdue. Sassbook AI uses advanced deep AI technologies that bring human-like touch to summaries unlike the word-frequency based shallow AI technologies of a past era.

Sassbook AI Automatic Text Summarizer

Sassbook AI Summarizer is not your average auto-summarizer

Sassbook AI Summarizer’s default mode of summarization is what is known as “abstractive summarization“. This technique does not merely rank and pick key sentences (known as “extractive summarization“). Instead, the text is analyzed and a summary of desired length is composed by removing extraneous and superfluous information. This human-like text summarization is key to automatic text summaries.

Of course, the auto summarization software also supports extractive summarization to address usage scenarios where no alterations to original sentences are permissible.

In simple terms, the abstractive summaries generated by the summarizer often surfaces content latent (or implied) in the original text, only possible previously by humans. The summarizer produces professional quality summaries automatically, every time.

Summarize text automatically in different sizes to suit your use case

The AI automatic text compactor can summarize text to different levels of concision. Sassbook AI summarizes supports three target sizes: small, best, and verbose.

Small is the smallest viable summary. Best is usually the ideal size given the content, retaining most relevant information in the source article. The verbose mode generates a more elaborate summary when you want to keep most of the information. Experiment with different sizes to choose the best one for your use case.

Create one-line summaries for your short paragraphs with the automatic document summarizer.

Automatically generate one-line summaries using AI Summarizer

The automatic document summarizer also supports a one-line summary mode, for short text, as deemed appropriate by the AI engine. This mode is abstractive by nature and can often generate wild, surprising summaries.
