Apify is a web scraping and data extraction platform. It provides an app store with more than a thousand ready-made cloud tools called Actors. These tools are suitable for use cases including extracting structured data from e-commerce sites, social media, search engines, online maps, or any other website.

For example, the Website Content Crawler Actor can deeply crawl websites, clean their HTML by removing a cookies modal, footer, or navigation, and then transform the HTML into Markdown. This Markdown can then be used as training data for AI models or to feed LLM and generative AI applications with web content.

The Apify integration for Pinecone makes it easy to transfer results from Actors to the Pinecone vector database, enabling Retrieval-Augmented Generation (RAG) or semantic search over data extracted from the web.
