What Will You Build with Watson on Bluemix?
Monday, March 16
5:00PM - 6:00PM
Radisson Town Lake
111 E Cesar Chavez
IBM Watson, the cognitive technology that enhances, scales, & accelerates human expertise, is available to anyone through Bluemix, IBM’s PaaS. Watson's cognitive capabilities on Bluemix will enhance apps & help developers realize ideas not possible with today's systems.
Quick test, ask your phone “find anything but pizza restaurants”. Did you get back a list of pizza restaurants? Think about how we’ve been trained to keyword search. We have all been Google-fied & we may not even know it. Humans adapt their language, one that predates machines, to the limitations of a system.
But Watson is not a machine that lets us talk to it. It’s bigger, and that’s why this is a historic moment for developers, businesses & entrepreneurs. IBM is creating tools that can understand language, determine a personality portrait, expand concepts & more. In this session we will discuss & demo Watson Services on Bluemix & how developers can now embed these into their apps for unprecedented cognitive power.
