Open Talk: Building Cognitive Applications using IBM Watson APIs on Bluemix

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In 2011, IBM’s next-generation AI system, Watson, participated in a televised special of the Jeopardy! gameshow. Competing against previous champions from the show’s history, the humans were no match for Watson’s superior speed and accuracy answering questions across all areas of human knowledge. IBM Watson was heralded as a new era in AI.

IBM soon began to look for areas to apply to technology in the “real-world”. Starting with a number of high-profile engagements, including helping doctors identify the best treatments for cancer patients.

Imagine if you could have IBM Watson powering your applications, what would you build? 
Well, now you can find out! 

IBM Watson is available as a series of “cognitive” services, accessible as REST APIs, on IBM Bluemix, IBM’s developer cloud platform. Developers can harness the power of Watson to build “smart" applications using the system for everything from recognising natural language, translating content between different languages, modelling user personalities, analysing trade-off decisions, extracting key concepts and relationships in unstructured text, identifying the content of visual images and much, much more… 

Developers can sign-up for free access to these services and start using IBM Watson today! 

In this technical session, I’ll demonstrate how to use the services in real-life by building sample “cognitive" applications using the APIs. We’ll start with walking developers through getting access to the platform, provisioning new Watson services and dive into the details on how to integrate them into their applications. I’ll be building a number of demo applications during the session, showing you the best practices on building applications with the IBM Watson APIs. Finally, I’ll show you how to debug problems and get help if you run into issues.

Come along to learn how to build “cognitive” applications (without needing a degree in machine learning) that are powered by the a next-generation AI system.
