The New Generation of Powered by IBM Watson Apps

#sxsw #IBMWatson

For the first time, IBM has made its IBM Watson technology available as a development platform in the cloud, to enable a worldwide community of software application providers to build a new generation of apps infused with Watson's cognitive systems intelligence. The move aims to spur innovation and fuel a new ecosystem of entrepreneurial software application providers – including start-ups and emerging, venture capital backed businesses. Together with IBM, these business partners share a vision for creating a new class of cognitive applications that transform how businesses and consumers make decisions. To bring this shared vision to life, IBM has introduced the IBM Watson Developers Cloud, a cloud-hosted marketplace where application providers of all sizes and industries tap into resources for developing Watson-powered apps. This includes a developer toolkit, educational materials and access to Watson's API. Come learn about riding the next wave of innovation.
