This open marketplace uses the power of the crowd to get algorithms to companies that can put them to use. Algorithmia is a live, crowdsourced database of algorithms. This helps the ground-breaking work developers do go beyond research or computer science departments and academic journals to app developers and companies who can make use of them for bigger things.

Both an open marketplace and an online community, Algorithmia makes algorithms more accessible. So far, there are over 800 algorithms in the database. Developers can use the site to host with work and have the option of making their work available for free or for a fee. Other developers or companies can search the database via the Bounty system.
